Yet, my mother 30 years my senior gave up work at 60; her employment was menial and hard so she deserved some rest. My mother- in- law only 22 years older gave up sooner when she could not cope with the increased technology.  

For my mother,  I was sad she worked very hard to make ends met and smile at the other when I consider the daily new technology and not embracing it, is not an option now.

Although my job is not hard or stressful and the money nice to have, I would enjoy a rest; on the other hand I do celebrate the joy of technology and the joys of creativity and it’s, as yet forbidden fruit, a lot more … am I alone?

My dad in the picture with me, died over twenty years ago; as master craftsman was very practical and also was not so taken with the need for new technology.
