Seasoned Heroics


I’m only 40, but I’m seriously¬†looking forward to my retirement.

Now that’s not to say that I’m tired or that I don’t like my job, it’s just that I’ve been watching people reach retirement ages and I’ve discovered that many of them enter their next stage of life with the opportunity to deeply invest themselves into their passions.

For some it’s exercise. ¬†The gym I go to is hopping with active seniors who take advantage of their newly flexible schedules to indulge in the life affirming joys that come from 45 minutes of nautilus exercises, a good steam bath, and then engaging in the time-honored ritual of nude locker-room conversation.
