So I retire 6/29/07, after 58 years in school as both a student and teacher, and, against my father's wishes, a dean.
My challenge is to make the most out of my third third. I'm not sure if I want to do this because of a work ethic, because of guilt that maybe I haven't done enough, because I don't know how to enjoy life, or maybe because I want to get very serious about life.
I tried hard to fix some things with others and their institutions. Though I certainly did make changes, I think I probably changed more than anyone else.
I've been thinking more and more about spiritual matters. I've always been more intrigued with mysticism than I have with rational thinking.
Ah, so much to learn about. And miles to go before I sleep.
