Step Away from the Computer

As much as I find technology fascinating and helpful, my oldest granddaughter reminds me that there are many times when it is even more important to stay firmly grounded in the “real” world. Time with friends and family still takes precedence for most of us. Table games and conversation are even more satisfying than the electronic ones. And when I am on the phone with one friend I do not feel any need to check on an in-coming call. I don’t have to have my phone at the dinner table or even in my pocket when I’m out. E-mail is helpful, but people still like getting snail mail and packages. And the world is even bigger and more beautiful when not looking through the screen on a phone.

Having first retired from social work in 2008, I've now had time to work through seasons of all play, and seasons of part-time work, while I figured out how best to make use of my "golden" years. The internet provides so much assistance in finding unlimited ideas related to finances, hobbies, travel and staying healthy, but I soon found my passion in quilting. The vast array of techniques have resulted in seeing inspiration everywhere, and practice is always rewarded with improved skills. Of course, grandchildren and family still get priority, but I see this as a pursuit that will remain interesting into my old age.
