Hi Maureen! I signed up for your writing class. I'm all over the place, and I'm also very old, but I hope to be heard from out of your class. I am trying to write something called "Recycled Awareness" which is a bit weird, but I can do something literally acceptable in order to get by in the class. I need to learn. I look forward to seeing you. I will probably be a pest, because I can really be active when the spirit moves me (like most people). Hope you are extremely tolerant. ... Norman
