Who I Am *waves* Hi! I'm Shira. I write stuff.
I live in one of the few single-family homes in Watertown, MA with my fabulous husband Adam (yendi), a dog (Nicodemus), and a cat (Bash). My wonderful daughter Elayna is off at college, but on breaks she lives here too. :)
Fighting Crime I volunteer at the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, doing community outreach and education. Please contact BARCC if you think your Boston-local school or place of work could benefit from one of our workshops or speeches!
Medical Crap I have epilepsy and celiac disease, among other things. Expect me to talk about this!
Friending Policy If you like my journal, feel free to add me! I like meeting new people. I don't friend everybody back. This is not a reflection upon you! It's just that I'm barely keeping up with the list now. DISCLAIMER!
