A writer who grew up wearing flip-flops...

Hello, all!  Here's my (still) much neglected web site of all things Mel.  Life is still chaotic (with me joining the ranks of motherhood and feverishly working on my dissertation), and I realize I haven't been updating myself here the way I should.  I'll try to do better in 2012.
Thanks for visiting!
P.S.  Buy my book!

The things I WILL miss...
Here is an incomplete list of things I suspect I'm going to miss when I'm no longer a pregnant person:
Being warm 80% of the time, even in winter; eating what I want, when I want, without images of diet consultants breathing down my neck and chastising me for that soft pretzel I ate at 10:00 at night; letting myself rest when I need to; having an excuse to do things I want to do, like clean my house, and get out of things I don't want to do, like hunt down and try to consume books on critical theory; simple foods that taste amazing, much more so than I remember; peace and quiet.

Little blog people

Coming soon: content...

Whence my freed Soul to her bright Sphere shall fly,
Through boundless Orbs, eternal Regions spy,
And like the Sun, be All one glorious Eye.
--Nahum Tate, King Lear

Jumping on the Internet bandwagon at last...
