Marian Swift is a recently retired bureaucrat and not-so-retired activist/busybody who squeezes freelance writing into her day because she doesn't have enough to do(?).
Like everyone else, Marian finds herself pinched by rising prices, along with a sinking feeling that things will get worse before they get better. Therefore, many of her hubs will focus on simple things we can do to ease the pain.
Other hubs will address the causes of our economic and social woes. In a democracy, citizenship is not a spectator sport ... and this is doubly true in an endangered democracy. (There may be one near you!)
And, sometimes, even the most dedicated busybody's just gotta have fun!
Marian highly recommends Hub Pages for folks who want to improve their writing, join a friendly and diverse community ... and maybe make some money! Click here to join!
Marian splits her writing time among Hub Pages and her blog, Striking 13.
People have asked about the avatar -- it's a cell phone snap taken at a rest stop overlooking Fannette Island in Lake Tahoe. Marian wishes that more of her photos taken with real cameras would come out that good.
