Wondrium is an excellent way to keep your brain agile or just enjoy learning.

If you want to keep learning stuff this is an excellent option for that is cost effective if you keep at it. $20 a month or less seems like a great deal if you consistently use the service. I have started and stopped a few different classes but you can come back to them any time to resume the class. Huge number of classes, I like history and art but the options are many in many different subjects, even dance classes!

I’m listening to lectures on modern warfare as kind of a follow up to a book I finally finished by Paul Kennedy “The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers. “It took me awhile to get through this dense book and I probably won’t remember details but I enjoyed the authors ability to keep me involved in a historical age from 1500 to 2000. I wish it had included more recent world events, but I suspect there are plenty of books written about the current pathetic state of affairs.

While I’m busy doing something else I’m avidly listening to “France through the ages” with lecture given in a easy to listen to french accent. The war lecture was getting into the weapons used in modern warfare and kind of lost me so touring France is much more pleasant, I can get back to war later, or forget about it.

It’s going to get very hot for the next few days…..weeks so that means I’ll have to be inside with the ac on all the time, I hate being so closed in with windows shut ! Charley doesn’t like it either, his favorite stop to sleep is in his bed under the RV but he’s anxious to come back in after being outside only a short time. Sometimes I can go out at night to mess about in the studio or sit outside to listen to music, just to get out of the rv for awhile before I go to sleep.

Went to meet a man for lunch at Sparky’s in Hatch

A Silver Singles man who on meeting said, “now you’ve seen me, you can go”. Wow, what a greeting! I just said why would I do that?

Perfectly nice man, my age but so self depreciated he didn’t expect anything to come of our meeting. Seems he thought I was okay looking, that wasn’t the problem, maybe my life style put him off. I showed him some photos so he would better understand me, but he said he could never live like that, he lives in a townhouse in town, where his neighbors are not friendly. I didn’t learn much about him, he never told me what kind of work he did and I didn’t ask. I don’t care about what he did in the past but am interested what he’ll do in the future and it seemed like there is not much going on in his life. He has a parrot for company. He had a nice smile, but I don’t think he expects this to go anywhere, I know he won’t push it, admits he’s submissive and that’s not the relationship I’d be interested in.

So, next? There are several men on the site that I’d noticed before apparently still single, I hailed them to say hello, a couple too far from here, another closer but hasn’t responded to my note, they almost seem like old friends in a common search for that one that will complete our lives.

Back to the Silver singles, I don’t see much to like there, but paid my money and will keep looking around, funny thing, there is a man from my park on the site, we’ve known each other for 3 years but never found ourselves interested in looking too closely at each other and now laugh about it and commiserate each other on the waste of time we spend on the site,( but yeah, no)

I’m taking a couple classes one is a daily writing course, not teaching me to write (sorry) but making a habit and understanding yourself through your writing, gain a perspective on who you are and who you can become….and who you want to be……
