Career Plans?

What is your career plan?

This is an amusing little prompt for a retired person. But judging from how people reacted when I attended commencement, they must equate retired with dead. In fact, when people asked me what I was doing there, I would say, “I’m retired, not dead!” (And then I’d say I was there for my graduating students.)

I am still active, though, as I believe anyone reading this blog can see. The experiments with AI continue my work with computers (which reminds me—I need to return to writing my digital technology memoir, as soon as I re-find my notes). I hope to be teaching a continuing ed version of my Playwrighting course this summer. And plans for the theatre/performance group continue; in fact, I’m Zoom meeting with my social media manager in a little while about the website.

To return to the prompt: what is my career plan? More of the same!

Do you think retirement is the end or just another act in the show? Let me know in the comments, and as always, please like and follow!
