2015 PEOPLE: EDU: Learning for life. Learning for living.

Learning for life.  Learning for living
Life-long learning.  No legal requirement.  And when you are retired, you get paid for staying alive.  You don't have to know anything.  But if you get comfortable with not learning anything new, maybe you won't know anything but the past.  But you may not be comfortable with just the past.  That is called curiosity.  Here are some ways to treat it.  
Voluntarily housebound?  Yes.  By choice.  Oh, I walk outside on occasion, when the weather is nice.  And I go out once in a while for medical attention.  And I chat from time to time with the people in old folks home where I live.    Most of my friends are online in the virtual worlds where I also live.  They are younger.

    GeoPoetry Short Poetry Workshop-Tue 8/25, 7pm SLT - 

    This week at the Short Poetry Workshop we’re doing GeoPoem which is a short poem based on a geographic location anywhere in the world, specified by latitude and longitude coordinates ("lat-long"). A GeoPoem has two stanzas of 6 lines. The digits in the lat-long determine the count for each line. So join us at the Short Poetry Library as we travel the world through poetry.
