….to live to see early retirement, you’ll be given an opportunity: you can sit home all day, watch the Soaps and go out of your mind, Or you can get out, develop new interests and adventures (yes, even locally) and reawaken that sense of wondrous joy at living in and looking at world that you had as a child.

Have you read Thoreau on conscious walking? You really must.

My brother Bob, seen here, is retired; he’s also a musician and plays out from time to time in local pubs and restaurants (the Buddha here views it all as so much illusion). He’s also into motorcycling (I call that madness) and travelling, nature, enjoys intellectual interests and recording music, to say nothing of babysitting his granddaughter…🎁
