Let's help Maureen become a Carmelite

In your charity could you consider donating to a lovely young lady who used to go to my parish? She wants to join the Carmelites but must get rid of all debts before entering.

Pretty good company to be in

I think this is wonderful. I hope it all works out for her. She can't postpone her entrance a couple of years and pay off her own debt?

Well,student loans being what they are by the time she pays it off she will be too old to be accepted.

I have quite a few loans to pay myself.

Since all were (together with a students' dole) granted by a central authority in Sweden, this means they made sure I could do the exams for one years' worth of study loans before handing me the next one.

It's not as if I had been heaping up loans for studies I had no aptitude for.

So, the work I do is, unlike that of Carmelites, not praying. It is writing.

If you care to promote me as a writer, that would be great.
