What will it be like when college is a midlife pursuit?
Love this! Poignant and intriguing.
How unexpectedly poetic! Makes me realize I got high on knowledge & potential & self-importance as much as other things in my university days. Only in this piece, it feels like something that we assume to be spring turns out to be autumn on the verge of winter. Views & priorities will be different for older students (I remember sharing classrooms & auditoriums with retirees, all of whom seemed to be enjoying their studies immensely). Food for thought!
