I imagine my life as punctuation. What symbol would I be? I am anything but an exclamation mark, though I like the sense of urgency--the feel of right now. Ditto marks don't become me, nor am I a matter of dashes, splitting phrases (and sometimes infinitives). I'm pretty sure I'm a comma, in mid-stream, but sometimes I wonder if my particular sentence has not already had its period, and I'm just working in the space after the paragraph ends. My law firm's name is comprised of two surnames, set apart by a Texas star. I am far too Arkansan to be taken quite in by this Texas bravado, but there is something appealing about being set off with a star.
