Avanti!

January 7, 2006

I am grateful to have had the privilege of being a student of Irving Layton at Concordia University in 1979. Attending his classes changed my life, not only because Professor Layton was an extraordinary and generous poet and teacher, but also because it was in his classroom that I met another admirer of Layton's poetry, Gerald,
who soon became my husband. I mourn the loss of my husband, and now of Professor Layton who encouraged us to continue to write throughout the years. And we did...inspired by his passion and love. Thank you, Irving Layton. Avanti! as you liked to say.
