"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Your Very Personal State House Tour

Would you trust this person to take you anywhere?

She talks to fish.

The Honorable Representative arrives at the Capitol after parking the Honorable Vehicle on Park Street.

"Welcome to the people's house!"

"Where is everybody?" wonders the occupant of Seat 03-93.

The electronic voting box for Seat 03-93.

At the podium.

If she ever needed to hold a press conference in the Legislative Office Building, it would look something like this.

(With many thanks to H.H. for documentary photographs,
and permission to use them!)
