Retirement for me has been a crossing over.

It carries its own goals, its own challenges, and its own commitments.

Because I was so physically active in my working life, I needed to compensate for that in retirement.

I’ve become committed to power walking and am now more fit than I was over the course of my entire nursing career.

Nature, music, and photography are 3 of my greatest passions. It’s wonderful that I can combine all of them while doing an activity that has already addressed several potential health issues.

“Don’t act your age in retirement. Act like the inner young person you have always been.”
