Ninety-three year old television legend Norman Lear shared a life tip on Wait, Wait…with two simple words—Over and Next and the hammock in the middle is living in the moment. Those two simple words of thought resonated with us and we eagerly move on to what’s next. Living simply in a small mountain cabin with a big barn sounds ideal to us. It thrills us to no end to think we can be in awe of the dark night sky right from our deck! We are fully aware and excited about a whole different way of life in a beautiful rural area of the state. It’s our next phase to enjoy living life in our sixties.
Some people seem to be genuinely concerned with “what will you do and we reply “Why do we have to do anything? We shall just be.” Be active, be healthy, be happy, and be at peace. We’re getting off the wheel. We can choose to listen to the chatter of the world or maybe we shall just listen to the sound of silence and ponder the meaning of life. We will take one day at a time and embrace the unfolding of new experiences, meeting new people, and opening up to what’s next…a wonderful life of reinvention is on the horizon!
