Post subject:  Hello From Tasmania Australia

Since I have been at this site for some time and posted several times, it seemed appropriate to provide some background---given that what I write has, I like to think, some substance---and it would be useful for readers to know something about the person writing what he writes at this site.-Ron Price, Tasmania

I have been married twice for a total of 43 years. My second wife is a Tasmanian, aged 65. We’ve had one child: age 33 in 2010. I have two step-children: ages: 43 and 40 in 2010 and two step-grandchildren, age 17 and 15 in 2010. I am 66, am a Canadian who moved to Australia in 1971 and have written several books--all available on the internet. I retired from full-time teaching in 1999, part-time teaching in 2003 and volunteer teaching/work in 2005 after 35 years in classrooms. In addition, I have been a member of the Baha’i Faith for 51 years. Bio-data: 6ft, 230 lbs, eyes-brown/hair-grey, Caucasian.

My website is found at: You can also go to any search engine and type: Ron Price followed by any one of a number of words: poetry, Bahá'í, literature, history, bipolar disorder, psychology, sociology, inter alia. :arrow:

File comment: This photo was taken in 2004 just after I had retired from all my FT and PT work. In 2004 I had just begun the earliest phase of my new life as a FT writer and poet in northern Tasmania. In the years 1999 to 2004 I began to spend eight hours a day, on average, writing and reading as an independent scholar. This photo is, then, symbolic of my new life’s activity in my lifespan, in these early years of late adulthood, 60 to 80.

Thanks, Francis Timlin, for your welcoming note. I'd like to make that image smaller, but I don't know how.-Ron
