The School of Athens 2021


The thing I miss most about college is being surrounded by well educated people my age. It was a whole city of interesting people who did things. Everyone had an abundance of free time to pursue their interests and learn and socialize with other people who shared those interests, no matter how obscure the interest.

There was a club for everything and each club had it’s own unique milieu. The meetings were interesting and the social events were lively. I can’t think of a better way to fulfill those top three slots of Maslow’s pyramid.

It was the Greek concept of leisure in it’s truest sense. Such a thing is hard to come by as an adult.

The internet is one such place, of course. Carpe diem.
