Out of the Blue or is that Blew?

Out of the Blew ©

Out for a walk or perhaps a sail

west winds blowing, hard as in a gale.

White cloud puffs scudding across blue sky,

golden sun shining down from on high.

Winter or spring, which season is true?

Often hard to guess, out of the blew.

Puffy white clouds stream across bright blue March sky
Wind sculpted snow
Sailing along the path to the park.
Blowing soil paints the snow drifts
Sunny Alberta
Down by the lake
A mix of spring and winter all in one scene
cross country tracks go cross lake
cloud and snow banks
empty skating rink – might be a good day for an ice boat
one last look at the lake
wind blended colours

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.
