I'm a retired FE lecturer (60), having taught Marketing and geography to Travel & Tourism students for twenty years or so, and I DO miss it a bit. My wife, Diane, is from Kendal, where she introduced me to the Lake District fells, tarns and lakes. They have been a source of inspiration for me (and thousands of other people) for my art and poetry, both of which are a constant source of irritation to Diane. *LOL*
I studied art to A Level but didn't take it any further, even though I was sorely tempted to apply to art college. I never really stopped drawing, though.
