I am retiring in just a few weeks and will be leaving this community at the end of this week to concentrate on what I need to get done before retiring. I have no plans to continue to contribute after retirement. I'll be concentrating on volunteer work, photography, creating art and catching up on 40 years of missed sleep.
And frankly, this place is not very much fun anymore. I think we close perfectly answerable questions way too quickly and drive people off. I am tired of having an answer half written when I can no longer post it. And I am so stressed by the current political environment in my country and a friend dying of pancreatic cancer that I am too hair-triggered.
So I wanted to say goodbye. Didn't want to disappear with no note to tell you what had happened.
Hopefully through the years, I have have helped some people. Hopefully others of you will continue to help while I enjoy doing something completely different with my life. Maybe I will stop in occasionally. But I suspect I will be busy enough that I won't feel the need.
