Merry Christmas!

Nice, isn't it? Except it's last year's
This year we went with the minimalistic approach

My 23rd Christmas at "Riverbend"! After more than fifty relocations across a dozen countries on four continents when the longest I ever stayed in one place was just under a year, I seem to have reached 'Journey's End' - or is old age slowing me down?

Retirement is not what it is cracked up to be. There were times in my high-pressure working life when I wished for nothing more than to be able to sleep in late and spend a day doing nothing. After sixteen years in retirement, I wish I were what I was when I wished I were what I am now (you may have to read this twice to understand what I mean!)

However, even nostalgia isn't what it used to be. And why Nelligen? Well, perhaps here the transition from life to death is hardly noticeable. ☺
