Introduction Trying my best to age with class, if not enthusiasm. I taught piano and music theory (history, harmony, etc.) while my four children were young and then completed my BA once my youngest was in school. Then my MA, then my PhD (in Canadian Literature) and now I'm happily teaching at a small university. All made possible by a supportive husband. We split our time between a small West Coast island in BC near where I work and our apartment in Vancouver where he worked until retirement, and where our three daughters live and work, along with their partners, and with our delightful wee granddaughters, Nola and Harriet. Our son and his wife live in Victoria, so we see them often as well. We're really lucky, I know!
