Having a guaranteed pension and health benefits that has allowed me to say “take this job and shove it.” I didn’t really say that - in fact I am forever grateful for a career that I loved and the wonderful people I have collaborated with over the years. I am acutely aware that it is a great privilege to be able to now retire with no financial worries.

Choosing my word for the year WOTY - “Marriage”. After having shared our lives for over a quarter century, I have found that I take Martha for granted. We do indeed finish each other’s sandwiches. So this year, now legally married, I am going to refresh my primary relationship by creating and sharing new adventures, upping my appreciation, and centering on gentle kindness, even when she is on my last nerve.
