just call me professor

Long time readers will know that I have written here about considering teaching for a couple of years now. I think I recently quoted Derrick Jensen here, where he talks about once you learn to follow your heart then the most moral and revolutionary thing to do is to help others find theirs. And so I have just accepted a teaching position at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver B.C.!!!

Long time readers will also know that I am a huge fan of Emily Carr the person, so being able to teach at her namesake school is a dream come true. Not to mention that Vancouver is one of the best places to live in the world! I can’t believe it myself. you can see some great photos of my new school and the neighborhood (Granville Island) here.

There is a lot to go through/get through before we leave, it’s a bit overwhelming, we’re just taking it day by day. Namely, eye surgery, selling the house here, packing and moving stuff to my inlaws for the time being, finding a place to live in Vancouver and lots more, (all with an energetic two year old in tow).

If you live in Vancouver and have any leads on a great place to live please let me know. We are in need of a small yard as we have a deaf australian shepherd. I am currently looking in the Kitsilano area, Trout Lake, Cambie, etc. as I’d like to be able to ride my bike to school.

Vancouver here we come!!!!

p.s. Several people have written asking if I could open the comments so people could easily send well wishes and offer support as I go through my health stuff. I would love to but the are currently broken. I am working on getting a new site up in the very near future so stay tuned for that (I will have comments then on selected posts).
