dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tam glimpsed through the bare trees from the campus of the College of Marin in Kentfield

Yes, it’s fully there … and from some angles looming large. I barely noticed the mountain today. I don’t think I was the only one in that state. There was a long line of us, young and old mixed about in equal measure, standing bewildered and waiting for our turn to register. According to Wikipedia, the College of Marin has been in operation since 1926. That should make it quaint – but the budget crunch in education leaves it with a new interpretation of just what passes for quaint … and shabby chic is not one of those.

Still, we, young and old, rich or poor, are incredibly lucky here in Marin to have access to so many interesting venues to pursue our interests, whether for education, job skills, self-improvement, or leisure, through the programs of the College of Marin. Over the years I’ve lived in Marin, I’ve taken credit classes in computing science, Italian, and accounting – and I thoroughly enjoyed them all. Yes, even the accounting!
