Part of getting used to retirement is deciding how you are going to spend all that new time you suddenly have on your hands. You can sit around watching TV and taking naps everyday, but just like a steady diet of pizza, it’s just not very good for your state of mind. I followed that routine for a couple of years including a fair amount of pizza and burgers until I woke up one day and said, “Whoa! What happened to my full and productive life?”
About six weeks ago, I took my first art class and just finished painting my first oil painting of a set of three or a triptych, called “The Blazing Trail Cowgirls.” More to come!
