Retirement isn't just about pursuing interests

Retirement is about not having to wake and get up at a specific time. It's about not being in a hurry most mornings. It's about making food, if you want breakfast, or taking a hot bath, relaxing.
I known a few people who had dreams of retirement. In two cases they were very disappointed, because once they moved or got the setup they wanted, they found it was a dream that wasn't really them.
I'm lucky in many ways, but I think after finding my long-term partner, my continued interest in playing music, and my new found interest in cooking makes my retirement from the work I loved even better. No clients!
Today, I grabbed the leftover veg in the fridge and improvised an omlette.

What reminded me were numerous posts on censorship. When practiced on the receiving (or "client") side, it's called curation. I wouldn't enjoy the platform nearly as much without it. It allows us to follow tags or people who ordinarily post interesting things but occasionally post in areas we do not care to see.

I don't mean that is wrong, I myself am an omnivore, I don't eat a lot of meat, but do eat some. If I was interested in certain things, I could follow tags or let them slide by, but if I am weary of seeing other things, and in... show more

Just glad it's late spring/early summer and spending a lot of time gardening. And nowhere near computer...unlike winter months.

I'm "on it" all day, but while I have it on, I'm doing other things. I seldom look at social networks, but monitor my email and music sites.
