Back to School

At the age of 60 I somewhat impulsively decided to return to college. I've got a degree and more academic experience than one degree would imply, but I never found work I liked with the skills I had, and after some years of retirement those skills were rusty anyway. I needed a skill-set makeover.

So here I am listening to teachers young enough to be my children. They look out over an audience of mostly youthful faces and say things like, "You are the wave of the future."

It's a little weird.

These are my impressions, the events that have caught my eye, the issues that intrigue me.
