Man Writing a Letter and Woman Reading a Letter
Man Writing a Letter and Woman Reading a Letter, two oil paintings on panel made by Dutch artist Gabriël Metsu in the 1660s. The former shows a young man sitting in front of an open window, writing a letter with a quill pen, while the latter depicts a woman reading a letter, which the work's symbolism suggests is a romantic one. These paintings are generally considered companion pieces, with the man writing the letter that the woman is reading. They have been held—and twice stolen—as a pair since at least the early 18th century, when the works were owned by collector Hendrick Sorgh of Amsterdam. They were donated to the National Gallery of Ireland in 1987.Painting: Gabriël Metsu

About me[edit]

Hi! Welcome to my userpage.

Since its inception I have avoided joining Wikipedia because I knew, once registered, I would get lost in the labyrinth of it's pages. With the responsibility of six children, a mother has little time to indulge in personal projects for pleasure. But, after discovering the wikibooks project, I could resist no longer!

Research is something I've always enjoyed, so an encyclopedia is just the place for me. Sourcing reputable references for uncited material in existing articles is something in which I will be eager to participate ... not to mention the nagging temptation of other wiki projects, especially wikibooks, wikiversity, and commons.

I was once a spelling and grammar nazi, however I admit that internet forums and chat have made me somewhat lazy. My excuse? Unless I'm writing a thesis, I see no need to make casual conversation so prim and proper. Well, that excuse isn't going to cut it here so I'll just have to make an extra special effort.

On the most part my errors will likely be of a grammatical nature or simple typos, so feel free to help me out when I position that semicolon in the wrong place or forget to hyphenate, and don't hestitate in letting me know the error of my ways here. I am a staunch advocate of the Oxford comma.

I enjoy reading and writing, visual arts, web design, music, craft, astronomy and science, archaeology (including historical revisionism), anthropology, philosophy and theology, current affairs, conspiracy theories, television shows and movies, documentaries, stand-up comedy, and my favourite colour is purple. I am a pro-cannabis, human rights, anti-war, nonpartisan political activist, and a direct descendent of John Frith the martyr. I believe in spirituality, but not in institutionalised religion.
