Just a Perfect Day

All photos taken on September 6, 2022.

Sooner or later, every vacation ends and we all have to go back home to NORMAL. Tomorrow would be that day for us, but right now, we would linger in the moment a little longer, down by the lake. Many people lament Why Me? when things go wrong. We do the same when things go well, asking how we got so lucky. Perhaps, it is luck, perhaps it is good planning or perhaps, it is just our frame of mind,

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. Such a wonderful collection of beautiful photos, Allan. Nothing matches the joy of traveling the world and going on spontaneous trips, but how do you go about the unexpected list of situations that could go wrong on your holiday? I usually see worst case scenarios as a two sided coin. On one side, you have certain defeat; the other side, you can be the hero or heroine of your travel story. Like an athlete you can survive a worst case scenario and overcome it, and gain greater travel confidence. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Thanks Aiva. You are right on travel adversity. Best not to dwell on what you can’t do, but to experience what you can do. Because we planned ahead and took our food and beverages, we were better off than those who had to depend on restaurants. Thanks for reading. Allan
