My early retirement years were as busy and sometimes even more stressful than my former job. Working in a voluntary role brings you into contact with a lot of people and organisations. Not all contacts are pleasant. After a lifetime of meetings, here I was again at meetings, meetings, meetings!
Rotary was great fun. And a lot of hard work. And more meetings.I was once again drawn into roles as a Chairman and President.Interesting, challenging but,too often, more hassle.And so, a few years after finishing work, I decided on a second retirement from public life. Into my personal wilderness.
And that's when the fun really started.
