People slow down when they retire, we all look forward to it, right? Putting our feet up, avoiding the morning rush, shuffling around the house in slippers and having a duvet week instead of a duvet day. Just make friends with some retired people, when you're spending time with them you'll be living your life at their pace. Believe me it will be a valuable way to spend your time! Older people have had the time to acquire perspective and knowledge, sometimes even wisdom. I have learned a great deal about art from my friends in my art group (they'll probably rail against being called old! Sorry my lovelies!) they've been tinkering and dabbling at art and many other things and they have a great wealth of another type of riches in our world - stories! So make time to listen this week, and slow down, just a little bit. xx
