About

A sociocultural anthropologist by training and a wordsmith by trade, I live with my husband, my daughter, and a tank full of fish and snails in the Mid-Atlantic, which is not at all where I ever expected to be. (Funny, isn’t it, how life goes?) When I’m not trying to theorize class in terms of place or rewriting other people’s manglings of the English language, I knit and read and cook and garden and hike and think and eat and photograph and sing and write and travel and plan and hope and . . .

Thanks for paying me a visit. Please join the conversation.

(If you wish to contact me by e-mail, I’m at marsha at first-things-first dot net.)

    Marsha, Marsha, MARSHA!

    Bonjour Mon Amie~
    Girrlll I’ve been trying to track you down for years. I googled you today and found an old website of yours which brought me here. I’m so excited (and quite diverted) to read your blogs. They are hilarious! I can’t believe you are in PA now! I live in VA.

    Once I left Belleville, I had no intention of going back. But, as we used to say en francais, “Pas du tous! Au contraire!” Alas I make my grand return this August for the 1988 Class reunion.

    After my first year at SIUE, I moved back to Europe and there I stayed for 9yrs. We moved to VA around 1998 and have been here ever since. I quite enjoy the area (I live in Hampton roads). My parents just got back from a long visit to the “Motherland” (aka Spain). I’m planning on going back next year.

    How are you???

    I envy your knitting talents. Another outlet for your creativity, no? I still have my Senior yearbook where you wrote all of your comments BACKWARDS.

    Anyhoo~ I hope to hear from you soon.

    Ciao!

    >Google Alerts sends me to random blogs about knitting, and this post put you on their radar, apparently. “Felting” is …

    Sorry your knitting search got you my Forteana blog. That’s kind of what happened to me–I went looking for monster bear sites and found a knitting site!

    Still, I guess this is part of what makes the net so much fun. Getting stuff we never expected, seeing how other folk spend their time…

    Thanks for the note about felting. (Knitting people are _very_ friendly and helpful. I also got a couple of emails!)
