Day 14 NaPoWriMo2017

Standard

Two full weeks and today a prompt for just four lines of biography. Instructions are to keep it silly and light. Well, mine has a slightly mordant cast to the snapshot biography of a childhood shero. I was fascinated by that entire Concord crowd, a nexus of creative thinking and activism.  Transcendentalism and its utopianism fascinated me.  I still hanker for the pet who will perfectly fit the name Zenobia, from a character in Blithedale Romance.

It tickled me no end when my cousin’s genealogy researches on Ancestry.com revealed that I am an eighth cousin of the author of Eight Cousins.

Louisa May Alcott

 

Transcendental wild oats aside

Hard to fault a saintly Marmee

Write an absent father story

Keeping our Bronson well alibied.
