It has passed one month since I retired.
I am enjoying my daily life now.
I get up lately and have a late morning.
Then walking to my small cave, and taking a hot coffee there.
Some of my colleagues recommended me of having a small private place only for myself.
They called it a cave.
As males having done since the Paleolithic era, they told me that I need a cave to looking at the fire after hunting animals.
I accepted their advice and having rented a small office for day time.
And I found small and humble restaurant for my lunch.
I made a rule having a lunch alone.
The one of the biggest difference was having lunch alone.
The humble lunch is important for me due to the problem of my health.
Just before the retirement, I had screened my whole body.
Doctors gave me several warnings on my health.
I thought that they determined the the retirement timing in considering of people’s health problem
I have had a lunch alone since the retirement as soon as possible.
Yes, I feel lonely sometimes when I have a lunch alone
But this lonely time give me precious chance to look back myself.
Below was my lunch yesterday.
People around me were mainly the construction laborers.
They put on worn and rugged cloths.
As looking at them, I thought each one has it’s burden on their shoulders.
On the wall of the restaurant, somebody had wrote something.
While waiting for meal, it is small pleasure to read the scribblings
After this lonely dinner, I had a meet up with 2 my high school alumni.
One is a dentist, the other is traditional medical doctor.
It was a first dinner with them after my retirement.
We went to the Chinese restaurant as usual.
My friend, a dentist, adores the Chinese food.
So we have taken Chinese food mostly when we met.
We had a toast with chinese wine.
Below were the photos of chinese food we had.
Inside of the restaurant looks like below
I love this kind of wall papers.
We talked mainly about our kids.
It was a happy night.
I feel happy always with my friends.
It must be happy dinner since I had a lonely lunch.
