When I was younger, I was on the go all the time, working full-time, getting together with friends, going to movies, shopping, running all over the place. And when I wasn't going, I was thinking up places to go.
Since retiring, I find I love spending time at home with Bill (and Dudley), writing, thinking about writing, reading, reflecting on life, cooking, taking long walks, and just puttering around. I still enjoy visiting with family and friends, taking short vacations, dining out, and catching a movie every now and then. But afterward, I can't wait to get home.
That is one of the reasons I enjoy Cara Swann's blog, Mad, Mad World. She is a writer who is a widow and living alone in the Deep South. Like me, she loves her solitude. I suggest you check out her site; I think you will enjoy it. A few days ago, she posted this video, Unique Life of a Hermit, and I found it very interesting.
