Roselio Muniz 101 Lifelong Leaner

Here is a link to a video showing how Roselio Muniz (101) spends his day. Apart from what he has to teach us, Can we notice that he is a perfect example of Lifelong Learner? I thank Justice Rangarajan for this interesting alert.
==============



Roselio Muniz is 101 years old and he's sharing the daily activities and choices he believes are responsible for not only getting him to this point but have allowed him to continue to live a life of vitality and passion. 
Whether it's getting a knee replaced at 92 or cycling several miles a day, see why life as a centenarian can be more fulfilling, exciting and vibrant than you ever imagined. 
Roselio believes it's not just his physical health that's kept him strong for so long. He explains why it's so important to him to keep learning, to enjoy time with his family, to spend time daily focusing on his faith and to practice forgiveness. Long after you watch this story, you'll remember this charming and inspirational Rock Star of Aging™.
