We are on, Marjorie: you are on my list! All's well. I am pleased to be connected.
Have always liked to be part of a team in anthologies. My last participation was in "Identity Envy: Wanting to Be Who We're Not" -- a queer collection of non-fiction, boys being girls and vice versa... We did collective readings in the San Francisco/Bay Area, very fun.

Marjorie, I don't find you on my friends' list. And yesterday I joined your interesting Anthology Group, but also see no trace of my message sent to the group... Odd, some activities just don't seem to register. Did you receive anything from me?
Very interested in your fashion book, by the way... Please join me as a friend!

Delightful news about the progress on and enjoyment of the book! My research is moving along; I'm writing an article this/next week called "The Pleasures of Civil War Ruins," which has necessitated forays into psychology, child development theory, and aesthetics. Just my kind of project . . .
