Christmas Past and Now What?

At some point in my life Christmas season became a time not so much for holiday stress but for holiday sadness. At some point Christmas became an event that was not about me, but about my children, and that was a point that heralded adulthood.  That was okay.  But later in life, the point at which the sadness began, was after the children were grown and gone and even had children of their own.  Christmas season, winter solstice, the end of the year, came to represent, and remind me, of the waning days of my own temporary existence here on Earth.  And when one begins to think about the end of life, ambitions and aspirations for the future become much more difficult to manifest.

Snow Day for Kids but I am out shoveling

After shoveling 12 inches of snow off the driveway, the county snow plow came by and threw about six inches of it back onto the approach.  I re-shoveled and then set out the garbage cans. The morning newspaper wasn't delivered until nearly 10 a.m.  Now we are told it will snow more today...and tomorrow...and the next day.  How many days until spring?

Third Phase of my Life is Retirement

This site is currently under construction.  I intend for this to be a most personal journal, emphasizing retirement lifestyle, introspection, health and fitness.  Building strong personal relationships have never been one of my better traits, so this is something I will be working on during my retirement years.
