 A reader sends along this excellent article by Arthur C Brooks about retirement, decline, and new purpose. I have written about Brooks, who just retired as the head of the American Enterprise Institute, years ago. I have referred to the information in his most famous book, Who Really Cares? many times.

There are so many places I could go with this that I have not even begun to narrow them down. Read the essay, but do not yet comment.  I will be thinking about this on tomorrow's walk at least, and hopefully longer.  At the moment, despite the sobering thoughts Brooks brings forward, I have a new something to be grateful for. But also, a sharper look at a future fear.

Be thinking about what you might say.
