On the road with my new best friend

by LouisQCI on 02-02-2011 at 05:52 PM
So itís been a while since the last blog entry. Things are going well, donít miss working and have had an opportunity to travel to Arizona last week. Got to say that is one dry place.
In the Sedona area there is lots of scenery that is quite amazing and nothing that I have seen before. Spent a few days walking around on the hiking trails and looking at the amazing red rocks and cactus festooned terrain. The highlight was the Grand Canyon which is actually more amazing than the name suggests.

Looking for a better way of handling lifeís ups and downs.

by LouisQCI on 11-03-2010 at 06:12 PM
So the last post was a bit depressing, it happens when you are sitting in the dark waiting for the power to get on. I hope to be a bit more positive in this one.



I did a bit of reading and online surfing to figure out this retirement thing and how I was reacting to it. I found a couple of interesting sources of ideas to consider in my analysis of my new role. The first was a physiologist author named Dr. Viktor Frankl in his book, "Man's Search for Meaning".

Thoughts on too much of a good thing.

by LouisQCI on 11-01-2010 at 01:00 PM
So what is going on in the land of no work and all play? Not much as it is the winter storm season and as such it is the perfect excuse for sitting back and enjoying a fire and relaxing. That is what is happening as I write this blog.
I wanted to think of a good topic for this one as it is the third blog and is starting to show commitment on my part for something. So what do you do when retired? The thing that seems to occupy my time currently is taking long walks where I ponder the

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

by LouisQCI on 10-27-2010 at 04:08 PM
So what's going great? The lack of time pressures of a job is great. Like I said its an endless weekend. I get to do what I want when I want (well still have my wife's directions but you get the picture). No commuting, not working late or those sort of thing. Still can't get the smile off my face most of the time.

So what is the bad part? Mostly it is the lack of meaning/purpose or what have you that work gave of the day. Work was a big part of my identity as it likely is

Thoughts from the endless weekend. Is the grass greener in Freedom 55 land ?

by LouisQCI on 10-26-2010 at 10:15 PM
So given that I just retired and the bulk of the GG are gainfully employed, I am starting this blog to share the journey that you all covet. What is going on in the world of the retired? Is freedom 55 the wonderful life that you want? What is the endless weekend really like?

The short answer is right now its great but heck I just started this on Sept 1 and it is sort of like an extended vacation. The storm clouds are on the horizon though, I am currently completing all the changes
