I’m not getting any younger.

And there’s a great big ol’ world of beauty, creativity, and wonder to behold.

So I thought if I pushed myself a little (okay, a lot) I’d absorb as much of it as possible in as short a time as possible.

I did something similar to this back in 2009-2010, but it was only for one year and only involved Mozart, Oscar-winning movies, Aristotle, and the novels of Ernest Hemingway. I learned a lot. And had a remarkable time doing it.

This time, I’m pulling out all the stops.

Because, as I wrote, I ain’t getting any younger.
