I am currently in the midst of taking sometime off from work. After working in the high tech field for numerous years I wanted to take time off to hang out with my old dog, exercise, read take classes, learn to make soup, see live music, work on photography projects, travel, etc.
Right after quitting my job, I went out and bought a Vespa. The scooter is great but more recently I have spent more time riding my 1972 Schwinn suburban. I love bicycling and because the surban weighs 40lbs it is a real workout getting that thing to move. Next step is to motivate myself to get back into surfing.
Life is good.
