|Introduction||I was born and bred in Boston. Lived the first three decades of my life in Greater Boston. Since then, have lived in Louisiana, Vermont, and North Carolina. I'm an aging flower child, a baby boomerette, a revert to the Catholic Faith, a wife, and a mother. I've been married for 24 years to Stephen, who holds a PhD from Harvard in (Byzantine) history. He homeschools our two sons, John (14) and Paul (11 going on 12). I've been an advertising hackette for some 26 years, in both agency and corporate environments. Right now I work for a giant apparel company, where I write e-commerce and catalog copy. Professionally, I'm interested in search engine optimization. Unprofessionally, I'm interested in retiring in a few years. :) My family and I live on 18 densely wooded acres north of Winston-Salem and south of the Blue Ridge. We belong to a small rural Catholic "mission"; it's a mission of a predominantly black inner-city parish in Winston-Salem.|

Unlike a dog, how can a turtle ever be naked?
By shucking its shell?
