Definitions…make me feel trapped. At my age (late middle), I guess I’m more aware than ever of flux and flow. I’ve been administrator, actress, academic, and (now) activist. I’ve had years of post-grad education in a field I will never cease to love: classics and the ancient world. Yet my wonderful (and sometimes crazy-making) autistic daughter has been the most important teacher in my life; with my partner/friend/spouse a close second.
