Henry Miller on Retirement 2.0; this time the notebook stays at home

As they said at the circus, it’s time to empty the cages and pitch the tents.

Consider this 2.0 retirement column.

Memorial Day is my birthday, and a chance to reflect on the fact that I have a few months left before I spend half my life at the Statesman Journal.

Not my professional life in the press; it would add another decade and change. No, that’s been half of my whole life.

My decision to stop writing a regular weekly column for the SJ is somewhat of a selfish decision.

This means I can go fishing, camping, hiking, and backpacking without having to lug around the Nikon, my digital recorder, a notebook, and a mechanical pencil.

Note for aspiring outdoor doodlers: Pens work when wet.

In fact, this is my fifth or sixth attempt to write one last column in two weeks.
