Today is the first day of my retirement.  Started with a walk on the Delaware canal.  Posted a few photos on FB.  And began to think about what is coming next.  I have lists and plenty of ideas.  Travel events booked through November.  One idea was to publish thoughts and photos on a blog.

My theme comes from the paraphrase of an Isak Dinesen quote from Out of Africa.  John DiGiesi wrote “The world was made round to allow us not to see what awaits around the corner.”  Dinesen wrote “Perhaps he knew, as I did not, that the Earth was made round so that we would not see to far down the road.”  I like John’s paraphrase, beginning today I will look to see what awaits around the corner.

First Day – a new beginning
