Cyprus is unusually quiet just now. The beaches are deserted. There are no tourists, and those of us who call this beautiful island ‘home’ are in lockdown, due to the global pandemic. Even the teaching, that brought me to Cyprus seven years ago, is conducted remotely!
My journey from Rastrick to Cyprus is a convoluted one. That I am here is, as my mum would have said, “more by luck than management.” This is my thirty-seventh year of teaching; I have worked in Service Children’s Education for 30 of those and have enjoyed a most wonderful career.
Greetings from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, a city of more than 100,000 residents, located in southern Alberta just a short distance from the spectacular Waterton/Glacier National Park, the Rocky Mountains and the U.S. border.
