I am seventy years old. On April 12th, 2010, my wife, Sylvia, and I celebrated our forty-fourth wedding anniversary. We have one child, Stuart. He died in 2007; after getting hit by a car. The driver was drunk.
I am a retired secondary English and Social Studies teacher and professional counselor. During my professional career, I did a lot of curriculum development work with Native Canadians. I also developed curricula in peer counseling, peer tutoring, and comparative religion.
I have special interests in religion, spirituality, philosophy, and creative writing (mainly essays, poetry, and short stories). At present, I'm working on a series of short stories, based upon several childhood reminiscences. Though I occasionally write science fiction (a short story and a novel), I haven't done any work on that recently.
