Bio: A 55 year old college graduate, in a delightful 24 year relationship, about to semi retire and move across the country to start a new chapter in my book of life. It has taken all my life to figure out that the only destination of life is death, destinations do not matter. What matters is the beauty of nature, the power of being inquisitive, and the security in real friendships. Oh and a good glass of wine, a freshly brewed cup of coffee, a piece of chocolate cake, and a really good book, often make life even better!!! Now that I have moved to Michigan... What is that like? What is retired life like? How does it feel? What am I doing now and how has my life, thoughts, body, brain, and emotions, changed since I began this journey. Please post your thoughts, stories, and your discoveries along the way, as I am interested to know. Welcome to my blog.
