What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm retired now, yeah! Downsized to a townhouse, getting rid of old
stuff and redecorating with the new. With the extra time and the
lack of corporate insanity in my life I've discovered quite by
accident I love to write poetry. I also serve on one of the
commissions for my city. My home has a small backyard that was bare
dirt when I moved in; I'm having fun gardening and doing little
bits of landscaping - it's the perfect size for me. Also, I'm
expending my culinary horizons and slowly learning to eat healthier
and do more cooking. I've rediscovered camping (well, car camping),
I like to ride my bike for fun and enjoy walking too. I'm

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Compassion. Love. Connecting. Sunrises. Chocolate. Skirts. Nature.
(that's seven; arbitrary limits I can do without.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Getting outside the boxes society offers up to us.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Scarcely typical. Sometimes a snuggle party, sometimes an open mic
poetry reading, sometimes a piano improv, cooking dinner for a
friend, a soak in a hot bath and painting my nails, sometimes
dancing, walking around the park with a stop to see how high I dare
