There are several ways to read the posts in this blog. A regular reader will see the latest posting upon entry. Or click on specific subjects such as paradigm shifts or Quilting, for archived material. You may note BookDraft in the Category sidebar. This category is, as it says, an initial drafting of postings that could might eventually become a book of my life as I remember it. It will be written “off the cuff” with little regard to correctness of grammar, language, etc., and what you may see this month could actually be much different several months down the line. That is the nature of learning to write. It isn’t as simple as it may seem. If you’d like to learn more about the title, Wintersong, go to February archives and click on “Hear my wintersong.”
I started this blog before Christmas for what I thought of as a “creative” venture, and for a long while I wasn’t sure in what way I wanted to proceed. So I took time off and read a lot of blogs and decided I’d like to hone in on a theme of “life in the retirement” mode. I like to think of it as a kind of journal I keep with a record of our new life (my husband’s and mine) in retirement. Will it prove to be an invigorating experience, or will it eventually lead to mental and physical stagnation? What will the long, sometimes scheduless, days lead us to? I know there are a lot of “us” out there as we were both born on the cusp of the “baby boomer” years. Thanks for visiting my blog. Comments are not necessary but are appreciated.
