    Joseph Campbell discovered a profound archetypal myth, the Monomyth, underlying the various legends of the world. Dressed in a thousand different masks and costumes and given a thousand different tasks to perform, the various heroes of the world’s myths all undergo similar metaphoric journeys or quests. Although no hero experiences the journey in exactly the same way, he found that the basic pattern or paradigm of the hero’s journey existed in all cultures. Note: legends and myths (stories) does not mean we are not referring to REAL PEOPLE.

    Almost without realizing it, we have shifted toward an all-digital culture, where things like family photos, home movies, and personal letters now exist only in digital form. Moreover, a growing part of our digital life is stored in services like FaceBook, Flickr, YouTube, and Gmail. Have you considered what will happen to your accounts and digital assets when you die? Whether you like it or not your digital assets have an afterlife. It is important to create a plan so that your family and heirs will not be left with a mess should you die or get incapacitated. Without a plan, the executor of your estate may have difficulty tracking down accounts, extracting photos and other important information, and closing the accounts. Bring your own brown-bag lunch to this free event and learn more about this important topic.

    In response to popular request, this course is being continued for new students and previous students to carry on with their Spanish adventure. If you think age or lack of experience means learning a new language is impossible, this is the class for you! Senior Learners Inc. presents courses that require no prior knowledge, so they are perfect for beginners. There is no memorization required, and there are no exams or grades to cause you stress, just a welcoming environment and a wonderful opportunity to learn something new and exciting. 

    Senior Spanish employs a whole language learning approach designed to be fun and relaxing.

Then we will use them to have mini-conversations and to play games. We will also watch short videos from well-known television shows and movies to hunt for the phrases we learned and present cultural topics for discussion. 

    We will also discuss topics such as how learning a little Spanish can improve brain health, improve general communication skills, improve understanding of yourself and others, and more.

    The Etruscan language is unique and mostly a mystery. So, most of what we know about the Etruscans comes from archeology or what others, primarily Romans, have said about them. Lessons from various The Great Courses will provide an overview of what we know about: where they came from; their culture; their legacy in the Roman World; and why their language will probably never be fully deciphered.

    Law School for Seniors: Torts

    * Thursday

    In our law school for seniors we have studied criminal law, civil law and procedure, now we will be looking at the most interesting part of law called torts. This may be a new term. Tort means twisted and is applied in law to a party who has a grievance against another party and is seeking relief. Torts are a part of everyday life: car accidents, medical malpractice,, harmful products, and anything that one may consider a private wrong. I think you will find these sessions the most interesting and practical part of law.
