About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Jane Eyre-First time ever I saw your face

One of the finest love songs ever was this one sung by Roberta Flack, recorded in 1972 - the year Brian and I got engaged. So this is for my sweetie - I miss you! This video is from the best versions of Jane Eyre - ever! So I hope you enjoy the song and the video clip.

Also, Happy Valentine's Day to all my wonderful friends. Whatever your circumstances are, know that you are loved!

I remember hearing this song for the first time, too! To be honest - and keep in mind I was a young man - I thought it was a bit long and slow (!) but today I realize it is a beautiful song.

The more I heard the song, even as a young man, the more it grew on me and I realized it was special.

This was during a time when there seemed to be so many good songs, wonderful groups and such a diversity of music! The late 60s to mid 70s were a magical time.

Take care and thanks for sharing.

Yes, I love this version of Jane Eyre too! Most poignant to read your dedication to Brian - we do think about you, Pete & I, and hope one day you will share what we have found, later in life.
