A Retirement like that

When every birthday is an occasion to rejoice.  Reading Rumi and Panchtantra to each other. And babysitting doggie- paddling in the water. Quibbles over food and cooking. Long phone calls to young relatives. And all that love coming our way. Sports and Arts. A little car. Friends for weekends, vacations. A home that has the sun and smells like a warm carpet in winter and wet leaves in the summer. Helping to search for each other's spectacles.

A retirement like that.
