Dr. Peter Hardy was born in the month of December, in the little town of Bethlehem…Pennsylvania.  Since then he has climbed Mt. Kenya on Christmas, slapped a seal in New Zealand, narrated a novel in Maine, snorkeled with sharks in Belize, betrothed a bride in Beijing, rode rapids in Bali, deferred a diploma in Mexico, rescued a rhesus in Rwanda, serenaded a street corner in Prague, and clutched a crocodile in Thailand.  Exactly one of those exploits is untrue.   He is currently teaching mathematics and zen, putting poetry to music and creating a sustainable lifestyle while living the dream with his family on Rainbow Farm in West Farmington.
