"Follow me on......."

Well, for those of you who are interested in following me on my journey back to school beyond age 65 ( I will be 67 this year ), I am continuing my blog entries at the new site, while I remain enrolled in Doctoral studies at St.Stephen's College / University of Alberta. Follow me there at It's an ongoing narrative that will hopefully continue to inspire you on your own journey of life. And thanks for inspiring me over these past years of graduate research. It's a blessed adventure with many more chapters to come. And your comments, either on the blog or personally, are always appreciated. Gerrit.

"I did it!"

On Wednesday, February 22, 2012, I received the good news from the University of Alberta that my Master's Thesis has completed all course requirements and was approved. As a result I have now officially completed the Master of Arts in Communication and Technology graduate studies and the Degree is mine. Wow! Just two months short of my 67th birthday.
My thesis is titled: "Think Art Think Smart: a dialectical model to examine the relationship between art and critical thought." Thanks to everyone for your support and encouragement. Now it's onwards and upwards with my doctoral program in time for my 70th birthday, which a friend said, "is the new 50's."
