Retire Different

I first thought I would avoid retirement.

Then I decided to reinvent it.

I am retiring at the still-young age of 57, but I have no intention of checking into G-d’s waiting room. Not for me the gold watch, golf, gin, and grandkids, the retreat to Palm Springs.

For me, this is about swapping my to-do list for my bucket list, while taking up the scholarly life I set aside decades ago.

I want to redefine retirement, build a post-career life that is as or more fulfilling than my working life, and share it with you to, hopefully, serve as a lighthouse for what is possible.

Welcome to my Post-Career Life.

Welcome to A Bucket and a Pen.

Pride

I am a Euro-Semitic-passing-as-white, male, Jewish (traditionalist but pan-denominational), cisgender, hetero, fit/active, monogamous, Freemason, and American.

I can be proud of my identity without taking anything away from yours.

Happy Pride Month. Hope yours was amazing.
