In the day of my dreams I will be retired

I want to retire. I am ready now to retire, but not sure how to go about it. Maybe one more year of teaching and occasional performances, and then I’ll decide on a new adventure. Gradual retirement will not work for me — too many exciting opportunities are available, and I can’t see to let them go by without accepting the challenge. I have tried to semi-retire, but within a few months my schedule was full again.

In addition to all this discomfort, I’ve also felt a sense of hope and unexpressed potential peeking through, like something really cool could be coming down the pipe

That sense of vastness, that life can be what I want it to be, and the startling realization that there really aren’t many rules (if any!) on how to do it properly.

I cannot let my skepticism overrule my faith that I will someday find my soulmate

I don’t want to be the kind of person who focuses on the worst in others, who never gives anyone a chance, who assumes the world is a horrible place filled with heartless souls. I want to be the kind of person who sees the beauty in others, who takes a chance on love, who refuses to let the past interfere with the future.
