Not Quite Ready for My Third Act
Midcentury Modern

Very well written, John, and I commiserate because I am also pondering retirement. I have put it off a couple of times since I reached my full Social Security age several years ago for the main reason you mentioned: what would I do? I also can say that I have taken a few years of retirement in short bursts: a year or two running a rock and roll bar in Vermont in the 70s, another year or so pursuing a career change into cooking in the late 80s, and those in-between-gigs periods when your major job is to find a job. Do what makes you feel good, John; I don’t know if Jane Fonda ever said that but she certainly has lived it. And if what makes you feel good is to continue working, keep pounding away.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
