Ah, Retirement

I must apologize for being away for the past week or so. Life has been hectic.

Two huge life events occured yesterday:
I turned 25…for the SECOND time
I retired from my job after almost 25 years. That’s half my life. Not half of my adult life, half of my entire life.

So a new chapter is opening for me and I have chosen to meet it in the same manner as I would anythng else, with wonder and excitement. There are some things I actually have to “detox” myself from as you can imagine after working at a job where your stress level is always at a max. By the way, you get used to that stress but it manifests itself in things like high blood pressure.

Devoting more time to my art and to my teaching are top things on my “To Do List”. I have actually had more time over the past couple of months to do just that.

If you like the blog, don’t worry. I’ll be back on here regularly pretty soon!

    I think I may truly be blessed. Two days after the hoopla of Flag Ceremonies and retiring, I went in for an interview with Home Depot today and was hired. So many people out there struggling to find a job and here I am, already employeed 48 hours after I retire.

    Cheers, Sensei !

      Hi Ren. No, not really. I did have a Flag Ceremony though where a lot of the guys showed up and were there for when they Color guard presented me with my flag.

      Funny. You retire from the Fed BOP and it’s almost like a military funeral
