Adult student at Wellesley reading for baccaleureates in peace and justice studies and comparative history. Married with two lovely daughters. Happily residing in the People's Republic of Cambridge, United States. Interested in everything, the quirkier the better — Victorian hair jewellery, Roman dream interpretation, Scots heraldry, collecting second-hand books, smelling of violets, commedia dell'arte, genealogical societies, the Junior League of Boston, architecture, Edwardian penmanship and jumping in puddles. Attempting to improve my French and teach myself German and Italian, as well as teach myself enough Greek and Latin to read the classics in their original languages. I am the classic Jill of all trades and mistress of none.
