Sometimes I surprise myself. Not often, but sometimes.
I've never seen myself as being interested in science but since I retired I've started to look anew at things which I never had time for (or interest in) in my younger life.
Today I started a new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) this time from the University of Leeds. It's called Know Your Abdomen.
I don't know about you but my abdomen is one of those areas I've always preferred to forget about. Every so often I have to think about it, generally when something goes wrong. I have hazy memories of O level Biology lessons at school but hazy is actually quite a generous description of my memory. Anyway, I decided that it might be interesting to get to know a little more so today I started my latest MOOC. This particular course was written for school students but "slightly more mature people" like me are also welcome.
And I was delighted that the course began with an illustration from someone even older than me - Leonardo da Vinci.
But really my delight for today is realising that I can surprise myself and that I still take pleasure in learning
