But Not For Me

Alarm clocks will be ringing this morning...but not for me.

There will be meetings to attend, paperwork to complete, countless little tasks to be finished...but not for me.

Students will be returning tomorrow; there will be smiles and hugs, lots of hugs...but not for me.

I'll be learning and exploring and having wonderful adventures. Life will be good, but it will be different. It was time for this change and I'm glad that I chose retirement.

Yet I will miss my library, my colleagues, and my students. The Journey continues...for me, and for them.

Farewell, Fort Ann! I'm lucky to have known you.

You are the perfect role model for me: active, productive, traveling and having fun :-)


Be careful what you wish for - I may show up, when you least expect it!


I certainly hope to duplicate your experience. Thanks!
