I’m having one of the best coffee I’ve had in a long time. For me, a cup of coffee has long been associated with some sort of relaxation, an excuse to slow down and have a break or a way to meet friends or co-workers for a chat (sometimes both).
Which is why today’s coffee is so great.
I’m on the last few days of a busy 3-week vacation through Europe and after going through Spain, France and now Italy, we’re taking it slow for a few days in Rome.
La Dolce Vita.
By what appears to be a magical contraction of space time, the present and the past have merged together. Everything appears to have slowed down. Way down. This is almost surreal. I’m using a 21st century tool that has a useful lifetime of maybe 6 years (a Macbook) to write in front of a building erected before year 0 even existed. And there’s no doubt it will still be standing in year 4016.
Life is amazing.
If this is a what Early Retirement looks like, I can’t wait.
Am I silly thinking this is how (early) Retirement looks like? Have you had such experience before that made you suddenly excited about Early Retirement?
PS: This is a short post today between a visit of the Pantheon and the Colosseum. I’ll be back on a normal post length next week once
early retirement holidays are over.
