New to blogging

This blog is born out of frustration with myself for failing to regularly record the impressions of my first year of retirement. I semi-successfully applied pen to paper the first two months of my retirement, May and June 2008. Since then, I have managed, occasionally, to jot a note in my pocket calendar (again, pen and paper).

I am dismayed, but not surprised, that without some written record, I fail to remember the what, when and how of my retirement journey. There is so much to be thankful for, and I don’t want to forget. Even though I may be the only one who ever sees this blog, the mere possibility that someone else may stumble across my posts will -- I hope -- keep me accountable and committed to recording observations about the blessings, experiences, challenges and issues during this stage of life.

Just stumbled across your blog... It was your interests listed on your profile page and perhaps your photo, too, : ) that brought me here. I wish you the best in retirement!
