I have been making various posts to various forums around the net using the pen name Alan OldStudent on a variety of topics, exercise, fitness, literature, Spanish and English language, news, and so on. My actual first name is Alan, I am a senior citizen, and I consider myself a lifelong student. Hence the pen name, Alan OldStudent.
My interests are physical culture, art, politics, music, history, computers, technology, and most of all, the human condition. To paraphrase Tom Paine, one of the early American revolutionary activists, The world is my country, humankind is my family, and to do good is my religion.
Karl Marx’s motto is reputed to have been, "I am human, and nothing that is human is foreign to me."
So the theme of this site is Socrates’ famous dictum: "the unexamined life is not worth living."
