No. It's like being a teacher. I'd love to be a teacher to a classroom of kids like my son, but even in his sheltered school, that's unlikely.

I would love to be a therapist to a clientele of delightful people like Babblers. But I suspect I wouldn't care for court mandated or angry clients too much.

I think I'll start out with some basic undergrad liberal arts courses that I'll need for either psychology (but not to be a therapist) or religious studies. I lean towards religious studies.

Obviously I'm not actually intending to replace my current profession.

I'm forty three. But that's no excuse not to learn. I'll likely be over sixty five when I finish, but that's cool. The university in question has a special program for students over sixty five.
