Every year I give myself one birthday gift that’s destined to last a little longer than December 12th. This year, I’m giving me a 6-month membership in OLLI, a University of Illinois-sponsored institute for adult learning that consists of more classes, workshops, groups and seminars than any one person could manage to attend without setting up a cot somewhere within university walls. On the menu of 2015 offerings is a writer’s group. I hope it works for me since the one I signed up for is filled with 20-something wannabes with dubious writing skills. Youth is great. Age is better!
