GOD, Hiking, kayaking, meditation, nature, Peace, photography, Retirement, spirituality, Work
Every time I go to the Eastern Shore with Kathy, I get this gnawing feeling in my gut, telling me it’s time to retire and move down here. It is just so peaceful.
Daydreaming with the moon and the windmill.
Little streams every where. Not big enough for a kayak, but a reminder that there are larger ones around…
Even just watching the nails back out of the boards they hold up, gives a sense of peacefulness, not found where I am today.
I know that peace comes from the work we do with our spiritual selves. That Peace can come no matter where you are. But for me, I can get too distracted with the busyness of my work and everything around me in the city. It’s bad enough I have never learned through meditation how to quiet my mind and listen to that ‘Still Small Voice’ within. Rock and Roll oldies still play in my head, like them or not! That is why I started to hike years ago and in the last year or so, taken up kayaking; to help quiet my mind. No matter where I go, there I am…but when I’m down the shore, it feels good – physically, mentally and spiritually.
Love this! Xoxo

Come join me as one of those people who “dropped out of the workforce”!! [Remember when we used to hear so much about them, but no so much anymore.]

Even with 35+ years on my job, the pension is not enough to live on. Pretty sad when you think about it…
You can’t afford to NOT retire!
Keep hiking, kayaking, wandering.
Work will do you in prematurely.
Time to enjoy life!
