I live in Washington, DC, newly retired from a quasi-governmental agency that formally brought you most of your communications. As a break from daily familiarity, I left the country for a couple of months after leaving my job, hoping that the pension people would follow up as promised.
I try to live large, but with a small footprint, in all the ways you’ve heard so much about — biking almost everywhere, using solar energy, not eating animals.
My partner, William, surprises me every day, usually, but with significant exceptions, in the positive side of the spectrum. Lately things have been very good.
