On May 24, with just a hint of tears welling in my eyes, I carried the last box out of my classroom with the now bare walls and turned in my keys. So far, however, it doesn’t feel like retirement (but what is that supposed to feel like?). It merely seems as if I am on my summer break, and my first week was consumed by work that I’d shoved to the corner in the past year, along with a few delightful days including a wonderful retirement lunch with three friends and babysitting my beautiful granddaughters.
Now, with anticipation and a mountain of apprehension, I concentrate on improving my photography skill and art. I am ready to begin my next career and ramble into the next phase of my life with camera, business cards, and a website: Ramona Howard Photography.
