The Socrates Club

December 14th, 2010 at 04:21 pm

I did something new and unusual for me today. I went to the library and sat in on a 2 hour meeting called the Socrates Club. They discuss philosophy and religion. This is unusual because I am not a crowd person and am rather shy around a lot of people. I'm not at all outgoing. There was over 20 people there, all of them 10 or more years older then me. I expected older people, since most people don't have time to go to meetings between 1 and 3 unless they are retired. But I really enjoyed myself and even spoke up 2 - 3 times.

I read about the meeting in the local community paper. It's every week. I think I will probably go back. When I was in my 20's I read a lot of philosophy and religious books, trying to determine what I believed in. I've always enjoyed philosophy. Today we talked about pleasure and pain and I found it very interesting.

Nothing financial today. I finished reading the library book Crystal Soldier by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Sci/Fi - very good.

    The club sounds really interesting! I've been meaning to look into or start a book club around here. I am in one with some friends, but their books tend to lean to history and sci-fi. I need a good chick-lit type of club Smile
