Finding our way to The Way one situation at a time. I don't know how great it will be, but I expect it will be interesting, and I look forward to it going on past all reason because wonder is just that way. Are you coming or not?
I've been retired ten years,
and hope I'm just beginning.
Retirement is a place for refining,
the lessons of the aging process--
it is all practice!
we continue the eternal practice
of seeing what we look at
and doing what needs to be done about it,
when, where and how it needs to be done,
repeating with increasing acuity
until we transition
back into the light.
It's all practice!
We live to refine,
and apply the eternal practice
of being alive
with our eyes open,
attuned to what needs to be done
in each situation as it arises,
in a here we are,
Kind of way.
There is only the practice!
The practice IS
we never retire!
I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing.
I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.

That is a stellar definition of retirement. nNo wonder I relate to your posts so well.
