We made it through another year of retirement (although this post is a day late - we're blaming island time!). This retirement thing gets tougher all the time. Just kidding, it's all good, todos bién!
I think this from a previous post, remains true: "this whole thing started as a small idea, grew into a big idea, and then a leap of faith with only stubbornness as a parachute. Step by step we went down the path, knee deep in it from the start, taking each event as it was presented to us and doing what we could at the time." That's still about right, we continue to take things one step at a time. You can expect more changes in the coming year (and not just because of the damn COVID-19!), we're just going with the flow.
As we've said before, music continues to inspire us and we like to embed songs in each blog post. So in looking back over the year, we've made another youtube playlist of all the songs we linked from our blog posts in the past year. We listen to the songs and remember where we were and what we were doing and thinking at the time. We hope you click through to youtube and enjoy the playlist. If you do nothing else, please check out Kenny Chesney's song "Better Boat". It just seems like an anthem for the current times. Now and then we let it go, we ride the waves we can't control. We're learning how to build a better boat.
We'll be back soon with new posts and new plans. In the meantime, we're having some bubbles.
Here's TODAY'S SPECIAL:
From the youtube page, click PLAY ALL and enjoy! And remember that you have to live life, don't let life live you!
