Yesterday was my last day of “regular” employment. In other words, I have joined the retirement crowd.

It was an emotional day ~ with hugs all around from staff and students alike.

In my mind I saw a curtain closing on my former life and opening to reveal a new vista of experiences.

I now have the privilege of asking myself, What do I want to do next? Who do I want to be?

I have freeing,  intriguing choices to make. And today is my first day to start making them.



About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

      Thanks so much for leaving this comment, Candy. Congratulations! We are going to enjoy ourselves even more in retirement than we did before.

    I only see one problem with this, Carol. Artists never retire! You have simply stopped doing one thing so you can devote yourself full time to your real job!

      I did say from regular employment, ART is another story. I couldn’t retire from that if I wanted to!
