When in a crowd, Myrra Birch seems to stand out from the others. She is several inches taller than most of her peers, and her cropped fair hair snugly peeps out from under a cloche of dark green net with a design of gold and silver thread. Tiny amber and gold seed beads have been embroidered on the close-fitting cloche in a floral design.
No one asks Myrra Birch about her family or her origins, more than once. That glance of hers stops questions more effectively than citronella stops mosquitos. But everyone knows that 'Daddy' is well-connected with the Right People. Her air and clothing bespeaks of wealth, certainly, and she has a 'fast' way about her that is as attractive as it is repellant. When she speaks, it is with a cultivated accent. But her fondness for gin and for jazz. . . .
I'm on the mailing list, darlings. Contact me there. My favorite old MUSH log of myself is that of a conversation about the sun, the moon, and the stars.
