About the Author: Paul Ryan, born in 1949, sixth in a family of seven. From purely Irish stock but third generation Austarlian. He has spent a lifetime in the classroom teaching Mathematics and Physics and a multitude of other subjects. He has lived his whole life in the Victorian countryside. The vast bulk of his energies were spent farming sheep and cattle and growing trees and rearing his three children, until his feeble frame could cope no longer. He has of recent years had to adjust to town life and this book represents something of a therapy in his later years. He has written throughout his life but largely essays and short stories, none of which has been published. He has spent his days in the constant company of his wife, Karin. She supplied the artwork seen on the cover of this book and the impetus and encouragement to bring this book into existence.
