Work Life Writing

Home Stretch

Making Room for the Future

The campaign to survive after a transportation career turned the bend and is heading into the home stretch.

Economic realities we face as a family continue to exist, but the effort to cope — including 12 lowly paid jobs since 2012 — will find some relief as I reach full retirement age in December and with it eligibility for Social Security benefits.

Independence Day marked the halfway point of the year and I can see the finish line from here.

What does that mean for the future? Less time worrying about how to cover each month’s bills accompanied by more and better writing.

Later this month I return to daily writing for a couple of weeks. I’ll be covering Blog for Iowa weekdays from July 17 to 28. I’ve got something different to say about politics so stay tuned.
