The Bigger World
Thursday, July 11, 2019
Periodically I realize that I am home too much, in the house too much, not getting out enough.My views, even my attitudes, become limited to what's immediately around me.
Today was not one of those days.
I spent the morning teaching a course in Safe Driving (sponsored by AARP) and hearing the experiences of a bunch of people - all new to me. Then joined a group of friends for lunch at a fellow's marvelous home (great city and bay views). Conversations ranged widely bringing fresh ideas, sometimes discussed with some intensity. After that, home for dinner with a house guest who has endless stories to tell about the Middle East. All that involved about an hour of walking in brisk but sunny weather.
So, today, I felt I I was getting out. It's always nice to be outdoors. My next "appointment" will be attending a chamber music session with a friend 4 days from now. Got to find stuff to do in the interim.
