“I value the diverse experiences of my neighbors, their talents and their readiness to warmly engage with each other.”
It’s true that Forest resident Arnie Lerman created the opportunity to retire early. He wanted to spend more time with his wife, the late Zena Lerman, and he also wanted more time to play the violin, to be active in community organizations, and to pursue learning. The Triangle, he says, offers a rich menu for engagement in the community and for appreciation of music, literature and art. From courses taken through the prestigious Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and lectures and programs throughout the area, Arnie is always looking for opportunities to learn something new. But Arnie gives the most credit for learning to his fellow residents and neighbors, a “community full of people, who by their diverse experiences, have so much to offer” by way of conversation and fellowship.
