I've been reflecting, over the past week, on the first year of my retirement. I've posted so far about the retirement issues that I found to be easier than I had expected: money, identity, and boredom.
"Life is pretty good when it's lived in the world's top few percent. And if you have the means to read this, you are in that top. . .

It is our delusion that life requires more, that causes unhappiness. . . Those that cannot understand this are the very ones who live in their lives sad and depressed."
