Introduction "I wanted to be a cauliflower all brain and ears, thinking on the origin of gardens and the divinity of him who carefully binds my leaves. With my blind roots touched by the songs of worms, and my rough throat throbbing with strange, vegetable sounds, perhaps I'd feel the parting stroke of a butterfly's wing . . ." I live a fabulous life here at The Beehive with my hilarious sister, spudly brother, fascinating mother and wonderful father, punctuated by visits at regular intervals from a dashed charming chappy whom I'm terribly fond of, don't you know. I Hum to myself, and sometimes it turns into A Good Sort Of Hum, called Poetry, but not always. I'm a Primitive Baptist and happy as a dozen clams about it. I've been homeschooled all my life except one year in preschool, but all we learned then was green-is-green and blue-is-blue and this-is-a-circle and speak-gently-and-don't-snatch-toys, so that doesn't count. I like to be happy and so far I've had every imaginable reason to be so. God is good.
