OLLI Connects is almost three years old, and in its short lifetime, we have shared a wide variety of your fellow OLLI members’ contributions: powerful stories, rich personal experiences, fascinating nuggets of history, and humor. We’ve taken you on trips to other parts of the United States and journeys to other parts of the world. We’ve shared technology, book reviews, poetry and more. We’ve had posts that were all photographs with no more words than were needed for context.
But we’ve not had a post that was almost all video. Until today.
Theresa D’Aiuto Sokol has shared two of her blog posts, and now she shares some of her video work. Click on the image to see the video. This will open the video in a new browser tab. To go back just close the tab. Don’t close your whole browser. Do not take dates or BOGO data in the OLLI promos as gospel. Some things may have changed since these videos were made.

Wow. So creative. What a pleasure to watch and think.
Beautifully done – and the images of climate change, in particular, are a real call for action.
Very creative! Kudos!

A clever and involving way to hit a lot of bases. Congrats.
