Colleen’s Poetry Challenge – Hobby & Play

The prompt words for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry challenge #129 are Hobby and Play: Synonyms Only.

 

Love of Music

I loved music, photography, and drawing as a kid. If I had a choice of a different career, I would prefer to do something with music. The popular vocations for girls were being teachers or nurses at that time. For the practical reason, I chose to be a teacher and took part in music as an enjoyment at leisure. I have had fun singing all my life. My two sisters, Yolanda and Queenie, and I sang in Mercy’s wedding in 2011. I sing in chorale groups and Messiah concert on a ongoing basis.

Live a balanced life

Keep a reasonable job

To afford pleasure

Weekly Photo Challenge – Repurposed Life Value

When I worked, I worked very hard. I dedicated all of my energy and my creativity to produce the best results possible. Looking back, I’m thankful for all of my achievements in my working life. My purpose was to serve the community well.

Now that I am retired, I repurpose my life and reallocate my time and energy. My pace is slowed down to smell the flowers, or watch the ducks swimming during our walk. My new learning is for fun while keeping my mind being active. Learning new skills in fine arts and be involved in music delight me as much as my accomplishments at work. I am content with my active retirement life.
