Getting ready to retire, a time of transition

We are getting ready to retire and do some traveling.  It is harder to do than I thought.  We are going through all of our things and paring down.  It is amazing how many things one acquires in a house when you have lived there for over 20 years.  I am finding things I had completely forgot about…lol.  
But on a serious side , it is sad, it is almost like a “little death” has occurred.  i guess the word is bittersweet.  I am looking forward to the new adventures but am sad to end this period of my life.  Work is all I have known for 40 years.  What will  I be without my title?  Perhaps. I have lost a sense of self in that title? I do not know but I do know that this is a time of transition. 2014 cover
