I wish I had a picture of an Eagle to post, but I found these wonderful monarch butterflies in my files. I organize all my pictures, somewhat. When I feel like being organized.
This time of my life I'm trying to flow with my feelings. Of course different appointments intrude upon that. But no longer a job. I've got 24 hours each day at my disposal...and I probably waste around 1-2 each day.
Retirement is truly wonderful.
You've already seen how I love to post pictures taken with a digital camera. The initial cost of the camera, memory card, and rechargeable batteries was covered while I had income. So now the only cost of the pleasure of sharing photos is the electricity to run this little old (purchased used) computer and the battery charger.
I also love that air, water, sunshine, breezes, bird songs, and the sights of nature's abundance are completely free. Well, unless you want the water to come out of your tap.
Taking a walk is healthy and a great way to enjoy nature, and to make acquaintances.
Music is there on the net, through iTunes streaming radio programs, through Pandora radio choices...thus I'm listening to The Eagles right now. I don't think I ever bought any of their records (yep, that's what they were produced upon first) or tapes, or CD's...but I do appreciate that this music is just here.
Reading? The library systems wherever I've lived have provided me with excellent resources for anything I'm interested in for entertainment or education.
Spiritual connection to others of like minds? Sure, there are enough churches around that this is an abundant resource also.
What are some of the free joys in your life right now, whether you're retired or not?
