Road Trip – Subtle

Staring silently seaward,

seeing subtle sunsets superseding sparkling sunrises,

several souls sit silently,

soaring seabird scenes suffusing,

seals swimming shoreward,

shadows shrouding scenery,

shining stars saturating saturnine skies,

stillness settling slowly,

simply superb!

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ 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 wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. 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 never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Thanks Lyssy. Those alliterative poems are the hardest, but S is one of the easiest letters to use. I can definitely recommend spending time in this part of the world. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan

    1. Thanks Aiva. I like to challenge myself from time to time to use tautograms or alliteration to see if I can write something that makes sense. Thanks for reading and your kind comments. Have a great weekend. Allan
