I was recently honored to participate as editor for Detroit Future City, an ambitious, comprehensive, yet pragmatic approach to the city’s future. The Framework was released January 9, 2013. Watch Detroiters make it happen.
I am lucky enough to make my living being curious.
I fell in love with language first. You can still dazzle me into submission with a single word, but it has to be the right one: ululate. chimera. house.
Think that last one doesn’t belong? Think again.
(and while you are thinking, please donate to Etymology Online, the most amazing free word resource on the Web).
Here is something I wrote a few years ago that sums up how I feel about language, about writing, and about the teaching of writing.
So leave me a comment, and tell me: How did you find your way with words? Are you still looking?
