Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

I found my perfect job

It has been an interesting week. I made it exactly 77 days as a retired person and now I am only semi retired. I was offered what I consider to be an almost perfect job for me. I am now a bicycle technician at a local, well stocked and established bicycle store three times a week. This was the first week and I love it! Now I just have to get used to a new schedule again and figure out how to get some writing in also. I also have to figure out how to resist buying any more bikes for a while!
Its funny, I was not really actively looking for a job but the perfect one just presented itself at the right time. It reminds me of the saying by Alexander Graham Bell, “When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”

Congratulations on "the perfect job". Being semi-retired myself, I find it to be a most pleasant state. Useful gainful employment, but not too much of it! Time and health are the true wealth.
