Life-long Hobby

My interest began as an adult and at this point I can't point to a single event. It was the early 70s; I lived in the countryside of Ohio, was a mathematics teacher, and Planetary Society was being born. I subscribed to various magazines with star charts and joined the Society. I thought it very un-intelligent of me to not know more about the universe around me. This led to reading books on the cosmos but it was always a hobby, not life work. I continued in the mathematics but always loved this diversion. Now I am back in the country with a grandchild who is inquisitive about the universe!
