I host house concerts at our local community center for great musicians and groups. A big reason I do that is so I can put them up in my home, get to know them, trade songs and play music with them.
I work out ,bike, hike, play volley ball, try to keep my body together.
I love to travel and see new places.
Retirement? Phooey. I don't think I've ever been trying to do so many things at once in my life. Probably because I'm so aware that I'm a short timer now...Time is flying by.
I sure would love to have a partner in crime;-)
And I'm sure not done with wanting a lover.
I would love to be a duo.
I went to Paul's (Lumen) wake last night. Open mike..People read his poetry, their poetry, played their instruments, sang their songs. I sang songs to salute him too. My friend Gabe was with him when he checked out. I don't remember the exact quote, but to paraphrase he said " It's time to go", took a deep breath and went. Made me realize that I don't believe in death. There is only change. The whole universe is only energy buzzing with life. There is nothing inanimate. Our egos are little foci that pop up and then melt back into the whole. If there wasn't what we call death, there could be no life. Change would stop and the universe would freeze. That would be real death.
Don't get me wrong. I'm in no way ready to leave (change) yet. "I have miles to go before I sleep". I hope I have Much living and loving to do with this body and mind. It's the time I have to act for change in the world.
I hope, when it is my time, I can leave and change like Paul did.
