Learning in Retirement
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Today I have just returned from an Open House for SAGE, the Learning in Retirement non-profit. A friend of mine who is very active in SAGE invited me to audit two sessions of the following classes:

Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutti


The World's Oldest Profession; the subject for the day was Mata Hari.

I enjoyed the format. There is a moderator of the group and each member gives a presentation followed by a discussion session. There are no lectures, note taking, or final exams.

So I signed up for classes beginning in January. We were asked to choose three, in order of preference. I selected

Trade Unions Past, Present Future;
Rails Westward (Building the West);
Spies and Spy Rings; and
The Truth About Islam.

Yes, I know that's four choices. I was a philosophy major and am math-challenged. I thought if three were popular, as a new person I might not get my first choice, so I selected four possibilities. I should get one of them.

I am bound and determined to get out of the rut I seem to have fallen into since retiring in December. This is a first step.
