I am excited to be returning to Antigua in the coming weeks. I will be joined by a friend, Christy, who visited me while I was on sabbatical in 2012 and will be staying with my friend, Paula, who sponsored me for my sabbatical.
When the hurricanes hit the islands, I tried to get in touch with folks and it was quite a while before I was able to talk with people in Antigua and then my friend, Paula, left me a message on my answering machine. I was so wonderful to hear her voice…”hello, Dr. Gately, this is “Poolah.” That wonderful voice and Antiguan accent went to my soul and I had to return to the island.
I hope to make short visits to a few schools, but do not plan on doing any workshops. Looking forward to seeing so many people. Antigua will always be in my heart.
