Desert Epiphany

Well, the plan was to go back to work full-time after my next big trip this summer is completed.

But yesterday I decide, ummm .... nah.

So I'm driving through the Imperial Sand Dunes area chatting away with Debbie on the radio

and my thinking goes something like this:

Know what I mean?


  1. Yes, I do know, Kim.

    When you are old, looking back on today, I doubt very seriouly you will say, "I wish I had kept my nose to the grindstone and earned more money."

    Probably your greatest joy will be reliving all the beautiful places you've been and keeping in contact with all the great friends you've made.

  2. With you 100%! Why go through the hassle of work if there's a way to live ok without the job? Life is too should be filled with wondrous moments

  3. Yes, that's why we retired as early as we possibly could! More money wasn't going to make us any happier.

  4. Good idea! Go for it! I remember my friend, who retired 2 yrs before me, said, "I can make my breakfast & newspapers & books last 2 hours if I want." At the time, I thought, "Who's want to do THAT?" NOW I know. So much in life has to be chosen BEFORE we experience it. If your income situation is not an issue, I vote for PERSONAL FREEDOM, under which we can discover so much about ourselves and our world.


Let's chat !
