A New Chapter


So, it has been awhile since I last visited my blog. Normally my periods of MIA are filled with nothing of interest to relay.  Same ole boring day to day crap that fills my life like it fills the days of everyone else. ........ SSDD and all that.

Well, my recent absence has been filled with excitement, stress, anger, elation, and any number of things not found in the basic make up of SSDD.

I have sold the bike shop.  The gyrations and emotional garbage that accompanied the early January transition are now safely in my rear view.  Because it was not a friendly transition, but one filled with hurt feelings and anger, I came out of it fired up and ready to do battle again.  This old dog is pissed and will re-mark his territory in the near to distant future.  Count on it.

I would get into specifics but why?  Let's just say a long friendship and mutual respect I thought existed does not exist anymore.  The bridge between us may not be burned down, but it is indeed on fire.  I have heard that Time heals all wounds. .......................... We'll see.

In the meantime, I have moved on for the moment, tabling any plans for the long term.  I won't call it retirement, though it may indeed turn out that way.

As one chapter ends, another begins.

Keep it 'tween the ditches ...................................................

Enjoy your retirement, find interesting things to do to keep your mind and hands active.

They say time heals all wounds, but it also wounds all heels!! Try and enjoy your rocking chair time!!

Fuck rocking chair time. Now is the time to learn to slow down and enjoy each day; begin projects you never had time for; turn the clock face and the calendar to the wall; This is your time now - you serve no one else.

Retirement is interesting. The time is yours to make of it what you will. I'm sure you'll have a fine time learning the new slower way of the world.

MRMacrum said...

BBC - Knowing you, keeping my mind and hands active would entail privacy.

Kulkiri - Enjoy is the key word I think.

Ol'Buzzard - But I do serve someone else. My darling significant other made sure I make that crystal clear. ....... Yes Dear, all set now.

robin andrea - Jeez andrea, I am already in one of the slowest states in the union. I slow down much more, I'll be in reverse.

Well, that sucks about the bike shop. Not the selling but the reason.
What is retirement? You just find something else interesting to do and hope it involves remuneration of some sort. Or mentoring for free or shit disturbing or. . .
