I have decided that learning French is good, but maintaining my native Italian is better. So, I will post with all three languages in the next few months. Benissimo!
My biggest challenge in retirement is balancing what must be done, like shopping and cleaning, with what gives me a sense of accomplishment, like gardening, and writing. I must remember that my work is behind me, but not my contributions to society.
And that is the crux of the challenge. Che fare. What to do. What can pass the time and still give me a sense that today was not wasted. Au revoir. Ciao, a domani.
