Last week I was lucky enough to spend hours with someone who really knows how to take her time. I got the opportunity to pitch in on a couple of days of day care for family in Virginia. The little one and I had a luxurious expanse of hours while the kindergartner and first grader disappeared on a yellow school bus until 4:15. Our wandering reminded me of wandering in London, but with the enhancement of adagissimo pace.
So this is retirement. The gift of a well of patience that comes from letting go of business.
