I have already posted once, but then saw this category. I have been reading this forum for advice since last fall, and joined a couple of months ago. I have more time now, easy access to the Web, and frankly I got tired of waiting for my friends to e-mail me, because they don't. Maybe this will give some fuel to my linguistic life. Most of you seem to be interesting (at least in your computer persona) and have some of the same interests as me. I am an avid commuter, and am very interested in social and environmental issues--especially ones that concern me, as I don't tend to have a choice as to whether to be involved or not. I was dragged into this world kicking and screaming, and still am, though now in a quiet, meditative way. I've got things to say, and things to ask, just not everyday. I'll be in touch.
