The thoughts that were crowding my brain as I walked in Hemer Park today were all about work – and how much less of that I am planning on doing. I think this summer I will transition out of more of the regular assignments that I do, just because they are regular and I have been doing them for too long. They need fresh eyes and thoughts. And, quite frankly, I’m bored with them.
I must keep doing things that excite me – or, at the very least, capture and hold my interest for the length of time it takes to complete the job.
At this point I am genuinely looking forward to the the time I can really retire. I have enough ideas now for projects of my own that I want to get started on. I want the time to devote to those writing projects.
But for now, I am putting all of that out of my mind – looking forward to the climbers route on Mount Benson tomorrow and a snow hike in Strathcona on Saturday.
