A New Wrinkle: Sonatas



A New Wrinkle: Sonatas


Now that I have retired, I have discovered how much of my life has evolved into being a home-bug.

I am not sure how much of the evolving was old-age catching up with a lifestyle of a seventh-grader during the day (I was a seventh grade language arts teacher until eighteen days ago), or how much can be attributed to a flare-up of myasthenia gravis.

Whatever the cause, I do not leave the house except for a fast-food meal, or to jaunt to the local Walmart.

Because of sensing this tendency upon retirement, I signed up at a local university for old-folks classes. They are called Life-Long Learning classes… a much kinder and politically correct term that old-folks.

In these classes, there are NO TESTS. I love that…. Plus no tests to grade! Even better!!

Just the accumulation of knowledge of a subject of which one has interest.

My first class is about the Birth of the Sonata.

I am taking the class to enhance my knowledge of things I know little about.

Music… I enjoy!

Sonatas… they were for study times in college; white noise to drown out the clatter of dorm life.  Sonatas were for NOT LISTENING TO… so it is strange to take a class now in which the entire class is devoted to LISTENING TO them!

I am sure you will be hearing more about this class!



Written for The Daily Post: Wrinkle  I have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My chosen topics are as follows:  (Monday) Life in Retirement; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.
