In A Nutshell
I'm 71,and that is just a number. I feel fortune that I have stayed active all my adult life and want it to continue in retirement. A line from a Neil Young song, "It is better to burn out than to rust". A great motto. I have a garden, play racquetball, own a kayak, camping gear,snowshoes,xcountryskis, and a bike. I am thrilled when bees, humming birds and butterflies visit my yard. Hikes in the mountains include watching for birds as well as natures many wonders.
I have traveled abroad and could be open to more.
I enjoy movies both in theaters and via streaming service.
Some of my recent books were the Big Burn,All the Light You Cannot See. and Boys In The Boat. I have read books by Ivan Doig, Daniel Woodrell, and Wallace Stegner.
I'd Just Like to Add
Some things that would take me way out of my comfort zone but should be tried. Finding college courses that I enjoy. Trying a yoga class, and learning to play the saxophone.
