Heading off to my first day of 2017 at Bird TLC. If anyone out there is worried about retiring and wondering if life holds meaning beyond retirement, I heartily suggest you find your passion and pursue it. That’s what I did. And my retirement has been filled with eagle poop and owl pellets and friendly nips from my Cache Crow Kodi and I could not be happier or feel more fulfilled.
There is life beyond a paying job and it’s more wonderful than you can imagine. No paycheck can equal the thrill of watching an eagle you’ve helped rehab be released back into the wild. That’s when I know why I was put on this earth.
