When I retired from teaching in 1996 I promised myself that I would ‘stay out of organization.’ I couldn’t articulate well what that phrase meant but I knew, and continue to know, when I am not following that promise. I know because I don’t like who I am—that judgmental, arrogant, privileged me.
So, once again I am committing to ‘staying out of organization.’ Besides a more positive frame of mind, think of all the personal time I’ll have to read, walk, meditate, listen to music and even do a jigsaw puzzle. And what’s more, after taking a hiatus after publishing “Very Grateful”, a new writing project is brewing inside me, which as you know will require all the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual time I can garner. A much better choice for me.
