What can strike many retirees particularly hard is just how many hours there are in a day. It can be difficult to grasp, while in the throes of a career, how much time is used either working or thinking about working.

Without that time guzzler, we must continually search for opportunities that make us feel productive and add meaning to our lives. It can involve re-inventing ourselves, sometimes with little or no direction.

Our goal here is to try to present some paths to consider, to lay out options so you can satisfy your psychological needs, and your creative ones. As a reader, please feel free to contribute your own ideas that can help make all of our lives more fulfilling.
