Introduction |My name is Ellie and I attend school at one of the finest institutions of higher learning in all the world. My story is no different from any told by young women. And I wanted to share it with you, if only for the sheer inexorable brilliance of it. And rather than beginning the way any other tale might, let me start with a query, a ponder if you will. For how do you, indeed how can you, start each and every day, in bliss?.. How do you face the day, when each and every day starts with your every higher desire being stroked, your every yearning fed, how do you then get out of bed and get on with it?
