Getting to know retirement. There are many ways to look at the milestones in life. And with each one you meet there is a slight amount of fear and excitement. I looked at retirement like something that was a long way off. And then it wasn't, it was here. This left me a little off guard and I sort of fell into it. After nearly 40 years of "professional" life behind me I had to find a purpose for, well, life. And that was a little bit frightening.

But it was there, so I needed to make the most of it. I couldn't spend the whole day sitting around doing nothing. So it was time for something new.

And so I embark on my journey, and you have a free pass to join me.
