About Me: A Retirement Lifestyle / Nomadic Adventurer

Fort Myers Beach Bodwhich Park Sunset
Fort Myers Beach Bodwhich Park Sunset

After 27 years in law enforcement, I have survived to live among my fellow retirees. I have downsized from the large home, the kids are on their own, the dog died and I’m learning to do what I want to do.

After many years of detailed planning and scheduling of life events, I’m excited to journey into the next stage of my life blogging, writing short stories and photographing, my nomadic adventures and discoveries.

This lifestyle change reminds me when I was a child playing outside in my back yard all day, stopping only to eat and go to the bathroom. Now, I live a similar lifestyle, except I bring my lunch and I need to find a bathroom.

One day, I will publish the written & photographic details of my new lifestyle and pass them on to my children and hopefully offer them something to aim for in their retirement.

  2. Nie Å›piÄ…, ale cóż powiedzieć? Havel to też po trosze i nasz bohater – przyjaciel naszych opcinojoyzstów. DziÄ™ki niemu nastÄ…piÅ‚o prawdziwe zbliżenie naszych narodów. Podobnie wspominam Kryla i podobnie patrzÄ™ na NohavicÄ™, ale z tych trzech Havel miaÅ‚ najwiÄ™cej do powiedzenia i najwiÄ™cej zrobiÅ‚.


  3. Fantasztikus! Ez a gatzÃrtons³mia ház nagyon jól hangzik, és reménykeltÅ‘, hogy eltartja magát folyamatosan. Legalábbis én reménykedek, hátha egyszer errefelé is nyílik valami hasonló. Bármilyen ország konyhájának.

  5. What a wonderful site! And let me say a big thanks to you for your time as a law enforcement officer. I appreciate the tough job you had keeping all of us safe. Glad you made it out safely and into retirement. I too am retired and love the freedom I have to explore my writing. Congrats on your upcoming book and thank you for stopping by the Cow Pasture.

I can’t even begin to imagine how bad it is. Stay safe all. Holly(LONG time lurker and lover of all things popped!) (well except bot-flys. Just can’t bring myself to watch th!v)!!oeWell-losed.

  6. Thank you for your 27 years of service in law enforcement. As someone who spends time on the other side of the radio as a dispatcher, I know that it is a retirement well-earned and well-deserved. It’s not getting any less crazy out there. Thank you for the follow and I look forward to seeing your work.

    1. Thank you for checking out my site.

      It has been a journey and five years into retirement, I’m beginning to truly appreciate all that I have done.

      However, no matter how professional emergency personnel interact with the public.

      The public’s​ first contact with the emergency call takers and dispatchers who’s initial professionalism sets the tone in the chain of emergency personal contact.Thank you for your service. 🙂

    1. Hello, Lisa, I’m participating in the WordPress poetry program also.

      I’m also enrolled in an online modern & contemporary American Poetry class organized through Coursera. Click the link below for more information.

      The University of Pennsylvania host the “FREE” online course. Check it out, it can be self-pace​ and this particular poetry class has a active worldwide following.

      I decided to self-publish after visiting Key West Florida and speaking with other indi authors.

      I have discovered detailed information either through books or podcasts​ covering every facet of indie publishing.




      1. Sounds like you are quite involved in the writing process. I know lots about self-publishing. Have published two books, one for mass consumption, and one for family. I love not having to wait for someone else’s approval!!

  7. No one told us, did they, that it could be like this? That we could retire and rediscover the joy that was always in us since we were children? Now I have as much fun taking photos of wild critters, as I did as a kid catching polywogs. I am a mental health professional and I never knew this was possible. Maybe it happens especially for those of us who worked difficult jobs. You have the same sort of surprised joy that I do, and you write really well.

    1. Cindy your response brought a tear to my eyes. You are so correct. No one told me this type of wonderful life existed as a retiree.

      After working with the horrors of society my inner child is slowly coming alive. I feel at times I have crossed over into a dream land, where I’m afraid to wake up to reality. 🙂

  10. You’re funny! Thank you for being in law enforcement. Cop? I know that is an incredibly difficult job with little pay and appreciation. How long have you been in Florida? I dream of living by the ocean one day, raising daughter now.


  11. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking something. I am enjoying my visit to yours and thanks for your 27 years in law enforcement. We couldn’t do it without you.
