Some people call it Retirement. A former teacher friend, retired now, is amazed that she is becoming a talented Artist. I became a dog breeder. I now have the 8 year old mother dog and her two sons, one from each litter. Then I got her fixed. Being a dog breeder is very hard work. And I love the puppies so much that I keep one. I know my own limits.
In my Act 3, I also worked on the local Democrats committee for awhile. Learned a lot about local politics. And came to understand why “all politics is local”. When you live in a rural farming community this becomes very clear in short order. Locally, I vote my pocket book ( taxes ).
Other Scenes in my Act 3 include working at The Village Store and The Food CO-op. Great ways to meet people and hear what’s going on. I know more people in and around this small town than I ever did in bigger cities where I’ve lived.
And Blogging. It’s writing without the stress. I love writing. I used to teach it to high school students. It always involved stress for them and for me. Oh, how I hate red pens!
