 Suddenly realizing that I have disappeared from view, I'm here to say I'm at least reading!  For those who think you can stop the crazy life when you retire, I'm a good example of how not to do it. I didn't intend to get back into political stuff just when a visiting monk arrived, needing chauffeuring and organizing and publicity for talks, didn't realize that family members might at that same time get ailments requiring attention from other family members, didn't think about how all of that could possibly get shuffled into my nomadic life. And cat, and house, and car, and friends, and now American Gods and The Handmaid's Tale both need watching.

And in fact there is writing that needs to be done, but it doesn't wave its hand and text me at midnight, so too easy to keep tending to that other stuff instead. 

I hope all's well with all of you!

So glad you've checked in -- and my gosh your life sounds full to the brim! Hope all is good now, and hope you can get back to writing.

Responsibilities change, but there always seems like there is something that needs to be done!

I knew you had been reading, but wondered where your posts had gone. I suppose it could be said that it is better to be busy than to sit with a cat and watch dreary sunsets each day ;o)

On the other paw, it sounds like you'll soon be overwhelmed if you don't prioritize these 'responsibilities' (requests for your time). And you retired in 2004? Good for you!

I retired ten years ago, but the quiet life isn't my path, it seems. I am still working full time to support the horses 😎 and the farm, trying to get my garden in, etc. I don't mind, because on the few days I have nothing to do I am bored silly.
