Four grown kids, four delightful granddaughters, constant, long-time partner. An academic (scholarly teaching is the buzzword), I read, knit, run, garden, and more on a very small (Canadian) West Coast island. The other foot (pied à terre, indeed) is in the city, where I shop, visit museums and galleries, go to the opera. . .
check out the crazy marine traffic we had to put up with this weekend . . .
A round-the-island race of remote-controlled sailboats. . . . So that sailboat at the horizon above and below is sailed by its on-board crew while those smaller ones in the foreground are being sailed by their owners falling along in the flotilla of small outboards. . .
How's that expression go? Ah yes, to each his own . . .
