"Slow down everyone
You're moving too fast,
Frames can't catch you when
You're moving like that."
-Jack Johnson, "Inaudible Melodies"
I had the great pleasure of enjoying a Jack Johnson concert this beautiful Tuesday evening at Berkeley's Greek Theater. We were joined by some wonderful friends, also U.C. Santa Barbara alums, though we all graduated several years before Jack Johnson graced the campus. The music brought us back to our college days anyway. Maybe it's just my imagination, but I remember those college days being a lot slower paced than those of the working world.
My post at U.S. News this week is about how to slow back down in retirement after years in the rat race.
Bob's post over at Satisfying Retirement also touches on slowing down and observing what's around you. He shares a wonderful piece from his creative writing class. It's amazing what you can overlook in your own life when you're moving so fast, not paying attention. As you'll see, writing is a great way to get you to do that.
Writing can also be a great way to connect with others in your retirement. Bill at Adventure Retirement shares his experience in, "Blogging for Retirees." Starting your own blog is a great way to get your brain working in a new way. If you're interested in starting your own blog, read Joan's Boomer Blog for tips on creating one.
I think Bob, Bill, and Joan would all agree the blogosphere could use a few more voices of retired folks sharing their wisdom with us.
