Years ago when I was a young girl in conversation with my Mom I said: "I don't want to get old." Since my statement made no sense, my Mom said to me: "You can die young and make a pretty corpse." By her quip I saw the foolishness of my declaration. She knew I meant I did not want to get old and wrinkled. My Mom was always quick witted with a sharp tongue. I am now of that age I considered ’old’. It’s not old at all. Now I am faced with a dilemma: I rushed suddenly into retirement, a little earlier than planned . It turned out to be a good decision. My children are grown I am an empty nester. While working I felt connected. Now I fell disconnected, so what is next? Post a blog on my page of ideas to get connect again.
