Hi-

It seems like whenever I get interested in something and start reading about it, I wind up coming across an article you've written on the subject. I love ideas and people and growth. So I have an offer for you: I will be moving (from Bellingham, Washington) in the nearish future, probably a little after New Years, and I would like to come to New York and work for you. I don't know what I would do - I could spellcheck and factcheck and do your laundry and dust your bookshelves - but I'll do it for cheap, and happily. I think you will be my Lois Weisberg[2]; your interviews and research will introduce me to people and venues for me to figure out what the hell I'm doing with myself.
I know what a ridiculous thing this is to ask of someone I've never met, so feel free to laugh and delete this. But if you're interested, and want a sense of what I'm like, here's a good place to start: http://kingnixon.livejournal.com/ [4]
