Everyone1 needs a hobby; something to stave off the boredom.
Long after starting this diary malarkey (or "Čblog"), I finally found a better text than "Retirement jottings..." though it's not original to me. Pity. How does Curating the exhibition of the self sound?
If you step inside (click the button above) you're very welcome to wander around the exhibits by clicking the "Next" and "Back" buttons that you'll see on every page. I have a long-standing fondness for footnotes. These have a clickable superscripted2 number (see what I did there?) taking you to that day's "Footnotes" section. Return by clicking on the number (or with your Browser's "Back" button, of course). I recently confirmed my footnote habit was already well-established a mere 35 years ago. Must all be part of what dear Mama always characterised as my "butterfly" mind.3
On a personal note
I began this "Čblog" purely as a retirement hobby. Christa and I had no formal plans for my retirement — just as we'd had no formal plans for the 33 delightful years we spent together. Life just kept happening, as it does, and we were largely content to go with the flow. Sadly, the diary briefly turned into a medical bulletin board as I cared for her during her final illness. I'm certain keeping it helped keep me sane, so I recommend the practice as therapy. But I hope none of my readers needs such therapy for years to come!
