Rissa danke schoen (and I am too lazy at the end of a work week to go umlaut hunting, so my apologies)! I miss my German as well; I used to be able to converse exclusively auf deutsch verbally, imperfectly, but not grossly incorrect most of the time. When I married a non-German-speaker I lost having someone to practice with, and when you don't speak a language, you don't speak the language anymore in a deeper sense. I still miss it. (And he got his revenve; after we divorced and became friends, he began speaking French at me equally fruitlessly!)

Blogger blocked me out yesterday, but I may actually have some observations up soon, and I am thinking I"d like to post an excerpt from my author's note as well. Stay tuned! :)
"To be the queen, she agreed to be the widow!"


The pre-modern world was willing to attribute charisma to women well before it was willing to attribute sustained rationality to them.

Good to see you here!
They are a pretty friendly bunch I'm sure you will feel right at home. And trust me your English is much better than my German. Just a quick general plug, a number of the authors (including me) in this forum publish in the digital medium so it is always worth checking Smashwords and Amazone Kindle
I beleive Amazon has just opened a division in Germany.
