Analogue Adventures – Kagoshima & Sakurajima 1985 – Day 8

All photos taken on May 18, 1985.

Awaking to the sunrise over Sakurajima the next morning, we could see what we thought was a bit of morning haze in the air. Little did we know.

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. Where did those people go. I know they are still in there somewhere. Nowadays, modesty has prevailed when I wear shorts. The hospital visit still cracks us up. It was so nice to be in a place and in the days of a medical system able to cope. Thanks for reading Bernie. Hope all is well. Allan


  1. Sorting out medical needs in a foreign country is oh-so-stressful, we’ve had more than our fill this last month. I cannot imagine having to do so pre-internet with nothing but a guide book, good humour and patience. Sakurajima looks incredible, amazing that such fruit can flourish in the most unlikely conditions. Your outfit Allan… it’s the best yet.

    1. It was certainly not a tour, we expected to be taking, but the people and medical system were very helpful. Riding on Sakurajima still seems like a dream. So glad we did it. Volcanic soil is very rich, but I wonder at the wisdom of eating those giant daikon. Maybe they would also make people taller. That’s 39 votes for the outfit. Maybe there will be a reprise later in this series. 😊Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan

    1. We felt very well taken care of that day, even with the dueling dictionaries. As to the $14, there was not even a reason to make a claim on our medical insurance. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan
