A Greenmount Boy Grows Up
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Everything in UPEI history professor David Weale's office is Y2K compliant-no sign of an appliance with a microchip of any kind. Before we talk, he copies out lines from his new one-man-show, Greenmount Boy, in long-hand on lined paper. But microchips or no microchips, David Weale has caught a different kind of millennium bug, because he's writing

Living By the Sea
Profile by Nancy Malcolm Sharratt

Nancy Perkins' paintings make people smile. They show women in old fashioned bathing costumes frolicking in the surf, mermaids catching rides from flying fish, or elegant tea parties surrounded by flowers and sea.

"There's always the sea," says Nancy. "It's the colour that sends me into orbit-the bluest greens and the rust and sand. They're such

As a novelist who writes primarily for young audiences, Elaine Breault Hammond has a chance to inspire many budding writers.

And the Band Plays On

Profile by Jane Ledwell

Under an enormous wooden stereo-a 1959 model as big as a sideboard-Gerry Rutten stashes an equally enormous scrapbook of newspaper clippings recalling his decades teaching music. The clippings culminate with tributes, honours, and awards from 1994, the year he retired from teaching at Englewood School. In that year, the Englewood band received not

Making Time
Profile by Jane Ledwell

I'll tell you more about that in just a minute," artist Hilda Woolnough said more than once as I interviewed her at her Breadalbane home. In her recent art, she seems driven to make the best possible use of time-as a theme and as a construct.

Hilda has just returned from a stay at St. Michael's Printshop in St. John's, Newfoundland, an honour offered to just

Often, Hedwig hears stories about her pottery. "People are very
