What’s “brave” about it?

I wish I knew why so many people think that going to the UK to do a PhD at age 60 (which age I’ve not reached yet!) is so all-fired brave. To my mind, “brave” is doing something that you’re afraid of. Oh, I do have a few anxieties about some aspects of it, but not enough that I think of what I’m doing as particularly brave. Adventurous, yes! And I think that’s really cool.

In a few months I’ll probably have to change the subtitle of this blog. Or not. Pondering…
