What is an insider? What is an outsider? This is a discussion which is complex and frustrating.

    Dear Lisa,

    I come to your splendid blog for the first time via Ruchama Feuerman's Writing Project site to which I have submitted a piece. Now I should really credit for her post about Ruchama whom I subsequently contacted which led me to your site.

    It's a bit convoluted but that is more or less how I arrived here, and I must tell you that I am very impressed by the depth and breadth of this blog.

    I have tagged your site as one of my favorites and will be visiting regularly. Well, just thought to introduce myself.

    I am,

    Very Sincerely Yours,

    Alan D. Busch
