I was born Patricia Elizabeth Lambert at Grace Maternity Hospital in Toronto, Ontario on January 29, 1953 to Marilyn Joan and Harold Ernest Lambert. I moved to the Lower Mainland of British Columbia on September 8, 1973 and I have continued to live there, most recently moving to Langley in the Spring of 2011.
In May of 2012 I legally changed my given names to Elizabeth Ann and, on October 27, 2012, I married Douglas Harold Curran (Doug) and took his surname, thereby erasing my previous name, although this was in no way an attempt to disguise or hide myself from anyone or any organization, as evidenced by the fact that my former name is stated above.
I worked in administration at Simon Fraser University for 13 years before moving to the BC Teachers’ Federation where I was for over 20 years, eventually becoming the in-house copy editor for that organization. In 2007 I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and placed on long-term disability; I subsequently qualified for the Canada Pension Plan Disability Pension.
My other pursuits have included over 30 years in amateur community theatre, primarily at SFU and in Deep Cove on Vancouver’s North Shore, and over 40 years as a practising witch and devout Wiccan. I have taught First-year Wiccan Religion, both online and in-person, on many occasions, to students in locales as widely diverse as Australia, England, and Israel. I have facilitated several Meetup groups, most recently in Langley.
In addition, I have pursued a life-long interest in consciousness studies and the study of wisdom as a concept; what it means, what it consists of, and how one acquires it. I have isolated several key principles of wisdom and have contemplated turning my copious notes into a class or a book, in order to share my discoveries. Perhaps they’ll turn up on this blog–stay tuned!
