What phrase or phrases, person or persons helped shape your philosophy early in life? And as you matured in later life?
We are asking everyone to bring at least one example, perhaps a phrase, so that each person in turn can add input if they wish.
H. L. Mencken

Greetings to members in the Lifelong Philosophy SIG -- OLLI at UK. Our next meeting will be September 22 from 9:45-11:45 am at the Eastside Branch of the Lexington Public Library. We will be in one of the meeting rooms on the second floor. From either entrance, go toward the children's books for the elevator or stairs.
In this meeting, Mary Fran Soulis will be facilitating in my absence. Gary Adamson will handle the AV. The topic will be sharing from the past week what people, places, things, and events may have prompted philosophical refections for you.
Also, before you leave, make sure to pick a topic for September 29. I should have posted your inputs from last week's template by then.
Be sure to check the SIG's web site for up-to-date info. This web page can be found at https://reasonockhammencken.blogspot.com
Write me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, if other questions come to mind!
