Pete Morin Editorial Review 2012-1
Man, it's been tough trying to find things to write about. Especially when you have all day, everyday to think about a world spinning out of control.
October 1, 2011 saw a new era in my life as I gave up the world of work. Retirement has been a blessing and a curse. I told myself I would do NOTHING for at least 6 months and I am now in my 4th month of nothingness. The only thing that has remained a constant is my writers block. I could write about politics, but it remains as stupid a profession that it has ever been. President Obama continues on his road to be placed at the head of the class with respect to political dunces; the Republican Congress continues to play into his very capable community organizing hands; Democrats continue to be irresponsible numb skulls. But other than these minor issues, all has changed.
I now reside in Richmond Hill, GA amid the land of eternal sunshine and warm breezes. Along with the copious amounts of warmth I sit astride a new toy designed for pleasure cruising; Honda VT750C Shadow Aero motorcycle will grace the back roads of Bryan County and provide a getaway from a troubled world. Sue hates it, but accepts it as a sign of an aging boomer intent upon a simple pleasure to pass the time.
Anyway, perhaps this mental block will pass. At least enough to give me good things to write (if I can only get up the nerve to clear my head). So, here I go--put your helmet on and join me on the road; the road to fresh thoughts and a warm breeze grazing the windscreen.
