Back to School (but not for me!)

My friend and former colleague emailed that she had four days of meetings in adult education before meeting students next week.  I have no meetings.

  Instead I have walked along the river with my walking buddy, chatted on the phone with another friend who moved away, had lunch with a young friend who wanted my listening ear,  practiced the organ, read two books and recorded them on Goodreads, and volunteered tutoring a student at Hope Ministries.  I have read long articles on line from GQ and The New Yorker. 

 I have no regrets that I retired 1 1/2 years ago.  My life is full enough. 

However, there still is some beginning of the school year excitement that I share when I see so many posting "first day of school" photos on Facebook.   Maybe I should go out and buy some new notebooks and pens just for old time's sake.
