Spooky life

Faithful_Poynter (2)

When I was a kid I used to visit the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. This was one of my favourite paintings. I used to stand in front of this magical picture for ages, trying to imagine what it must have been like in Pompeii as the City disappeared.

The painting is called  ‘Faithful Unto Death’ by Edward John Poynter. I know it is a rather romanticised image… I have worked with modern day soldiers and most would just fuck off in this situation!

Anyway the spooky thing is, I recently found the motto for my family name.

‘fidelis ad urnam’

Faithful until death…

I have been a teacher all my life. That doesn't just mean in School! I taught my brothers to ride bikes and go camping in the mountains. I taught Football, Cricket, Squash, Sailing, Climbing and Karate. In BNI I became the Education Coordinator. With my Property Business I laid on Investment Seminars. I taught my sons to Fish for Carp. And I still teach Maths and Physics to students who want to go to University to study Medicine or Engineering. Now I am teaching people the things I am learning online.
