Walt here. So, I stand on the cusp of a new adventure in my life. I will be retiring in June (June 3rd to be exact). And being within the month, I’ve been keeping silent count of the remaining days. I figured that’s a good point to use as reference, so here’s what I propose..
A COUNTDOWN TO ______________
Write of the anticipated something in your life in a countdown to that momentous occasion. That’s the theme, but you can word it however you wish to convey your thoughts. I’m counting on you all to do me proud (you’ve never let me down!) I don’t anticipate you’ll start now.

COMING OF AGE I turn each page gleaning all I can from the information at hand. But, it has become a time clockj of late. Ticking down every minute and second chance, a fated dance with my mortality. The reality becomes clearer the nearer the end rears its head. Another birthday passes, another Christmas looms. Another year at a job that has served the family well (but not well off by any stretch). Here’s the catch. I look forward to the golden years (if they are granted me). I’ll make no demands or make outrageous plans. Retirement comes and gladly before I’ve expired. I’m starting to get tired. There’s a new calendar in my future. I pray there is a future in my new calendar! I turn each page while I can. © Walter J. Wojtanik – 2022
