A post from Fernando about Bill Cunningham made me think about the desire to retire.
Bill C loved what he did, continuing to work into his 80s, when most would have retired 20 years or more before. I too love many of the things that I do, but there are times when the stress - the friction points - make me really wish I could just go fill shelves in Tesco.
I wonder if it's possible to find a way to live where the friction is dealt with, freeing us to just get on with what we're good at? This is really rhetorical, but it's also an 'I wish'.
p.s if anyone hears of any jobs going where I can cycle round a major city taking photos, then writing about them, please let me know. :-)
