I am a woman over the age of sixty.My hair is going lighter like Helen Mirren’s but my mind is active and creative.I still enjoy learning,talking and seeing new perspectives.I h ave been advised not to put my photograph on the Internet .I am looking for people who like books and ideas and humor.I am not looking for love here.I am looking for friends who have similar interests or new exciting ideas
This blog will be a sporadic one it will be about writers,books and related topics as and when I discover writing I feel is worth sharing.I may take time out to read if I need to do.
After a short time I seem to have gone into philosophical issues more than I imagined and it has proved hard work.I shall return to books again of a different type.I think it’s the people who interest me…trying to imagine what it was like in Germany in the 1930’s and wondering what I would have done.~Yes,people fascinate me.Sometimes I think education can be a bad thing unless it’s very high quality.We learn a little and grow conceited.We believe we know everything and can tell others what to think,This worries me about even University education in Britain now.Sometimes I believe education can damage people who have heard of the names of many philosophers and writers but read none of their original works
