Most of the people in my library school class were over thirty, some of us
quite a lot over. I was much too busy to fret about turnign forty. Also,
I've worked with students as a librarian, and some of the best I
encountered were returning students. I don't have children myself, but
from observing my friends I'd say that it gives you an advanced course in
time management! You may find yourself a better scholar when you return.
Don't give up!

Thank you, Wendell. St Louis, as in Missouri? That is closer than Oxford,
if less fun to visit and about as likely for a commute. I will keep
looking around the website and see if they have special events or lectures
The closest college here is Western Connecticut State University, and it
does have some good courses. Fordham has delicious offerings, but it's
rather far for regular commuting.
Thank you, Jane, for the good observations earlier. How many folks onlist
have gone back to college post-kids? Have you found that your minds were
different? I seem to have developed at least some of the critical thinking
I lacked, but I still need to learn basic rhetoric (hence the rambling
emails) and the ability to draw my own conclusions. Well, perhaps first I
should go to E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, if Michael Bugeja is still
there. I've long been a fan of his (I'm not sure if he still does a poetry
or poetics column in Writer's Digest magazine, but he used to).
