I like to talk. Ask Max, who generously and often concedes the floor to me in social conversations (a.k.a., “cannot get a word in edgewise”). Opinionated and loquacious, my impulse to communicate was officially recognized in elementary school when I won the “Chatterbox Award”. Keeping with tradition, this section of the LCS website has morphed into a collection of essays and short stories I have written about Art, Culture, and Design. Fortunately, I have learned a few things since elementary school.
