Many people have asked me when I plan to retire. I don’t, I tell them. As long as my mind, body and spirit allow me, I will soldier on to contribute in whatever way I can to make the world a better place for myself and for others.
Some seem genuinely perplexed as to why I would want to continue working for the rest of my life when I could do nothing more exhausting than to sip margaritas and hang around all day long. Well, because doing nothing would be extremely boring and akin to a living death for me, and because I don’t want the neural connections in my brain to die.
