The retirement question

More of us are retiring with more life ahead of us than any generation preceding us.

Those of us who make the distinction between jobs, careers and crafts would argue that people retire from jobs and careers, not crafts.

A craft is intrinsic to one's self-knowing and self-expression, one's own personal and transcendent myths. A craft is something we get better at with age and each year of our life, leaving our craft becomes measurably less likely.
