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. We’re so used to the hustle and bustle of city life that an escape from urban settings is something most people cherish. Maybe it’s just the tranquillity of nature that makes us have inner peace.

    A sunrise is one of the most impressive sights one can ever witness.It not only looks beautiful but also gives us new hope and new beginnings. It brings joy and positivity to an otherwise dull life.

    Wherever we travel, witnessing the sunrise as well as the sunset at a new place is high on our list. Sometimes, we lie awake under the starry sky until the stars disappear into the sunrise. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. You have said it all very well, Aiva. Sunrises and sunsets happen every day, whether we are there to watch or not. Taking the time to be present and witness this magic is a gift to ourselves. Thanks for your comments and enjoy your Tuesday. Allan

  2. I have always wanted to be the kind of guy who can regularly wake up at 6 and go for a walk to drink in the quietness and the colours. Or simply pack in a productive morning’s blogging with a coffee and a pastry. But I rarely actually do it, so good for you Allan. Even by your standards these are some gorgeous images, you should frame one and find it a special spot.

    1. On the other hand, I can not stay up late to see the summer stars. There is always a trade off, I guess. Thanks for your kind words Leighton. I even impressed myself with these shots. Thanks for reading and commenting. Allan
