You might have noticed, but perhaps you haven't yet, that I've reformatted Em-i-lis just a bit. About Me and The Origin of Em-i-lis have been rolled into one another, making way for the emergence of an essay section written by moi. Some may sound familiar (if you read Em-i-lis regularly), but others are new to you. They've been inspired by different things but all are personal reflections on the subject at hand. A number of readers have generously and kindly complimented my writing, and so I thought this compilation might be an enjoyable element in the Em-i-lis experience. Many thanks!
