This is one of my co-workers last day. She's been here 19 years. And this is it. She's not retiring, just quiting to pursue other avenues. To say I'm jealous would be an understatement. I'm green with envy. I probably look like that dragon.
It got me thinking about doing the same thing. I have a small pension that might last a few years if I'm careful. I could move into public housing with little or no rent and no utilities to pay. But, then I got to thinking about health insurance, car insurance, renters insurance. Damn insurance.
What would I do with all that time? Write, write, write. I could develop my voice. I could self publish. I could take creative writing classes. The possibilities when time is not an issue seem endless.
Instead, I'm bidding farewell to a friend and day dreaming of a time I can follow in her footsteps.
What would you do if you had the time?
