About: Mary Daly

Graduate homeschool mother of five, science teacher for St. Margaret's Fellowship. During the fall 2009 semester, meteorology teacher. School background includes BA in math, long ago. Family background includes lots of scientists and a mother who studied Emily Dickinson all her married life (starting on her honeymoon when Emily's "Bolts of Melody" was for sale in the garage where their car was taken; of course it broke down, then and always.) On a mission to help Christians (especially Catholics) to be happy with the right relationship between the life of faith and the life of reason. I hadn't knitted for quite a while when I read "The Wisdom Paradox" and then I read "Knitting Circles Around Socks" and started knitting two socks at once. I've always been a cook, always a breadmaker. Always a reader and writer. What you don't write, you don't remember. They say, "A short pencil is better than a long memory," but in fact: Even a short pencil makes a long memory. Even if you only write a diary and nobody ever reads it, it's worth it for what you become. Oh yes, this is a bio, not a preach. OK, I love Jesus and I learned to pray when I was little. I live in the country where it's pretty quiet.
