Coffee Mug of the Month: Easing Back into the Classroom

Returning higher education after an absence of nearly three decades – and while working a big job, being an engaged dad, a supportive husband, and an committed scouter – demands a VERY gradual approach.

Fortunately, the classroom is no longer the sole locus of education, and I can get some “enrichment” style learning under my belt as I build school back into my schedule. I’ve gone through four of The Great Courses (which are truly excellent, BTW) and have a dozen more ahead. By the time I hit my Fourth Age, I will be ready for the lecture hall, if not the Blue Book.
