Retirement Wish List

by Ruth G.

Having crossed the threshold of 50 some time ago, and thus become the recipient of flyers from AARP, the idea of retirement has started to intrigue me. Retirement won’t be happening anytime soon, but sometimes I see a book and think, “This one goes on the stuff-to-do-when-I’m-retired list.”

eating

 

 

Maybe I’ll eat my way up and down the West Coast…

 

 

birds

 

 

…or, zig-zag across the U.S. and Canada, counting birds…

 

 

wienermobile

 

 

Even better: do both in the Wienermobile!

 

 

 

soup

 

 

Wouldn’t it be fun to start a neighborhood/community soup night?

 

 

kitchen year

 

 

I could do like Ruth Reichl and cook like crazy for a year…

 

 

 

bounty

 

 

OR! I could cook like crazy using my own homegrown organic vegetables!

 

 

seized

 

 

What about a spiritual pilgrimage amidst the olive groves, rolling hills, castles, and cathedrals of northern Spain?

 

 

gone

 

 

What if I got really fit and went on a quest to visit all the Most Endangered National Parks?

 

 

nun

 

 

Maybe I’ll get so fit I can be an ironwoman athlete!
