Our town was covered under a fresh blanket of winter white, the sun was shining, the sky was blue and the winds were calm. There was nothing for it, but to bundle up and head out for a walk to Four Seasons Park. I knew I would regret it, if I left my camera at home, but I did not know how much beauty I would find outside, as we walked. Even the ugly swamp spruce trees in our park were transformed…and the snow crystals were everywhere. A glorious day.
After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation. View all posts by kagould17
