Chapter: Next

This is a new blog for a new chapter in my life.  After 12 years, 11 months, and 1 week (but who’s counting?!) I left employment with Thomson Reuters Legal in Rochester, NY.  They needed to reduce personnel costs and the years of service gave me a acceptable severance package and 6 months to decide what is next.  So on December 19, 2014, I said goodbye to some good friends and fine legal publishing team members, but also a 30-minute commute and time away from family and activities I would prefer to be spending time on.

So, what is next?

  • How about taking over barn chores 5 days/week (7 equines in the barn)?
    • Started 12/22/14.
  • How about doing more cooking, household tasks?
    • Started 12/20/14.
  • How about spending more time with my parents and mother-in-law?
    • Started 12/20/14.
  • How about this blog?
    • Starting 1/24/15.
  • How about learning to use WordPress to build websites for family and friends.
    • Started 12/27/14; hope to publish two sites by end of the month.
  • How about looking into some self-employment opportunities?
    • Started 1/20/15. (Just realized; that is right at 30 days after leaving T-R!)

I’ll share updates on all of these activities and other odds-and-ends here.

  1. Walter,

    Beautiful start to a new life …love your words about the new endeavors and opportunities that await you! Pat and I are smiling (and really looking forward to reading today’s NEW post.) And for those interested, the website above (www.cpond.com) is one of the NEW projects that Walter updated for me in January, 2015. So, you can see some of HIS efforts!

  2. Walter–
    Congratulations! I too like your wording of your next chapter in life. Looking forward to further installments.
    It’s been a long time — too long — since we had a wee chin wag!
    Cheers,
    Bill.
