A writer's daily accounting. Poetry, Photography, Dear Diary, Scrabble and Tea, Collage and Commentary, and other good ways to spend time. Loose Change is the descendant of Loose Leaf Notes, which began in the spring of 2005.
From the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia I write to synthesize what I'm learning at the time, whether it be poetry, a political commentary, or a letter to my mother in Hull, Massachusetts, where I'm originally from. Whenever I don't know exactly what it is I'm doing and it borders on wasting my time, I call it research. 'Dear Abby, How can I get rid of freckles?' was my first published piece at the age of 11.
