Still Cleaning

New Book

As I mentioned yesterday, I am finding it hard to rule a line under the teaching part of my life and move on.  I think being so ill this last time has made me see that it is inevitable, but, it is still hard.  It is so much of my identity and purpose in life.  So, I went looking for advice from friends, which didn't help much, and then I came on this book by Joan Chittister.

A very insightful book and a good meditation for any one who is facing retirement or just growing older.    I bought a Kindle copy but you can purchase it as a paperback or hard back book.

I think you are right, for many people WORK has been such a great part of life it is hard to retire from. Especially when the work has been TEACHING. As you know there is not end to learning, so there is obviously no end to teaching. I will find it very hard to let go of my teaching mission...


Thank you for the recommendation!

My pleasure.
