I’m Molly Gleeson, and I’m a writer. It took me a long time to be able to say that with any confidence, but I know for sure now that I qualify. I write, after all. I feel the need to write. I’m pretty grumpy when I don’t. I even have some articles published in various places. You can check it out on my website, http://www.mollygleeson.com. I have a finished, but as yet unpublished, memoir, My Heart is a Wilderness, about the year I spent teaching in Saudi Arabia. I spent seven years teaching English overseas – in China, Japan, and Saudi Arabia. Mostly I write about those experiences, or things related to those places. But I’m no less interested in America, and will have posts about things here, too. I can’t quite limit myself in topics as of yet, which is why the subtitle to this blog is “Commentary about Possibly Anything.” I suppose that is a cop-out of sorts, but I can tell you that I will probably write about travel, education, workers and working, sex and sexuality, mental illness and its challenges, and notions of home and country. I may throw in a few posts about books and writing. I will write about these things because they all play a major role in my memoir, and because I find them interesting. I hope you do, too.
