We all know that it’s never too soon to start saving for retirement, but is it premature to start planning my post-retirement career now? Ever since coming across this tour of a beautiful ceramicist’s studio a few weeks ago, I’ve been fantasizing about life at the pottery wheel. It would all take place at my home in the country, of course, and I’d spend my days entertaining whatever creative project inspired me in that moment. All around me, racks of powdery fresh pieces begging for a coat of paint, or better yet, stacks of earth-toned and pastel vessels, ready to be filled with flowers and foods. The fantasy got me thinking: I’d love to know what hobbies you’re dreaming of taking on, either this year, or in the very distant future. Anyone out there happen to share my aspirations?
