Alle’s first international publication.

Guess who, sports fans?

The Canadian magazine, This Great Society, published my essay, The Buddhism of Baseball. Give it a gander.


Author: allehall

I am a writer. I write to explore childhood: literary essays and short fiction, journalism, and three haiku. My published work expresses my belief that everything which did or did not happen to me as a child is manifesting in everything that is or is not happening to me today. More importantly, it is also manifesting for my children. I believe funny is the new navel-gazing, and that the best funny keeps a penny's worth of serious in an accessible pocket. Little-known fact: I have a completed novel decorating the inside of a desk drawer. Perhaps it is not funny enough.

  1. Alle!
    I found your above essay at SheWrites and may I say I LOVED it!? You had me laughing, admiring your writing, and then gettin all teared up. I think if anyone had been listening outside the computer room they would have heard me snurfling. Seriously. Sheesh girl you have some catastrophic writing skeels! OMG I wanna be you when I grow up. Even though I am unsubscribing from like every email I get (because I get too freakin many) I signed right up, quick as a bunny, to receive your crisp and lively missives. Yahoo! Actually your intro email from SheWrites had me giggling and involuntarily clicking on your link when I really should be shuffling the kids to bed (not that they mind.) If you interviewed Leonard Nimoy you are a current hero to my husband. Our first date movie was Generations. Nerdy I know. Anyhoo, you can check out my memoir at and in the meantime I am trying to inject humor into my writing so I am so in awe of you sistah. You got it all. Write on! : ) Julie

    1. Goodness gracious, girl, I should hire you as my Resident Pumper-Upper. And when I grow up maybe I will be me, too.

      Thank you so much for your generous superfluity. Tell your husband that Leonard Nimoy is an astounding egoist with an entitled sense of what he calls “feminist credential,” but other than that, a cool guy.

      I’ll give your memoir a gander as soon as I get my own children to bed.

    1. Thank you.

      As I owe my life to anonymity, I completely respect your desire to remain “Anonymous.” However, I’d love to get to know you. You can e-mail me directly (and anonymous, to the rest of the world ) at:

      If not, well, I hope you keep reading. Thank you again.
