As a celebration of my upcoming birthday, I thought it fitting to write something that reflects my current daily life. It’s a great privilege to study, write and learn at this age. It has intrinsic worth in itself, without the “I’m
doing this so that . . .” I am having enormous fun and pleasure, not to mention interesting challenges on my weekly trips to class in Manchester. Classmates are great to be with and are all wonderful writers. Carol Ann Duffy, our tutor, is an astute
commentator on our work while being enormously supportive and encouraging. It is a great space to be in right now and I am so enjoying it. However, it doesn’t make writing any easier.
So read, enjoy, pass it on and send
me encouraging and corrective comments, please !!!
