It Didn't Work Out That Way
Retirement led me from one profession (medicine) to another (writing). I never did get around to rocking, but that was okay, because the people I saw doing it didn't seem to be getting anywhere. My golf game is hopeless, although it's been a lot more fun since my golf partner and I stopped keeping score. Travel has become so hazardous that I rarely have a desire to go anywhere, and when I do it's a hassle to go through security, then sit in a cramped aluminum tube for hours.
In other words, this isn't the life I imagined. Yet now I can't imagine any other. It's really true, isn't it? Man proposes. God disposes. Then again, that path is often better than what we had planned for ourself anyway.
Is the course of your life different than the one you planned? Are things better or worse? I'd like to know.
