Pictures from my West Chester University ACDA Talk

Theresa Whitehead, the Treasurer & Secretary of the West Chester University chapter of the American Choral Director Association, sent me some pictures from my talk there last weekend. Everybody looks so nice!

I adopted them all but it was over the internet so I’m not sure it’s legal.

It was a little chilly so I put on the jacket I brought to wear on the train.

I’m always shocked at how teeny I am. I feel so much larger to myself. I’m going to be the littlest of little old ladies (and yes, I realize that to these kids, I already am a little old lady). Thanks again for inviting me, I had a great time!

  1. It’s interesting about being “teeny” as well as older. I am both also! I am at school full time now, working on an MA in philosophy, and with only a few exceptions, all the students are younger and half the profs are younger than I am too. But I don’t feel that much older – only when it comes to life experience, then it becomes clear that they just have not lived as long as I have. And I am always surprised at how small I am (even though I don’t think 5’2″ is that small). When I stand next to other people, they are almost all taller and bigger than I am.

    To me, looking at you in the group photo, you fit right in. I think age is also about attitude and if you retain a child-like interest and joy in everything you encounter, it shows. I do that with philosophy, and the other, young students are often shocked when they realize that I am older than their mothers. Life is interesting, isn’t it.

  2. It is. Also, I’ve actually grown a little taller. I’m sure it from swimming. I am now 5’3″. I’m a giant! Except thi young people of today are even giant-er.
