Hi there

I was reading your passions and saw a couple that made me curious so thought I would ask. Do you write now for a paper or just love reading the articles? What kinds of prison reforms would you like to see? What kind of storytelling? What languages do you speak for translating? I think there is a group hoping to get bilingual members to help translate articles back and forth on here but forget what it called but they will see this most likely...

Welcome and I look forward to your posts,

Maria

Hello

Erin,

I just read your link to the NPR report and then clicked on your personal intro. You mention an interest in prison reform- did you happen to read last Sundays NY Times magazine article -Behind Bars...Sort of by Jim Lewis. It reports on a prison in the small Austrian town of Leoben. The architect, Josef Hohensinn designed the prison with glass walls, balconies, communal cooking spaces, private bathrooms. Intriguing article about how architecture affects humanity and behavior.
Check out the link if it sounds interesting.

I look forward to hearing more of your thoughts on WP.
