Re: how old are you?

58, 15 months out from retirement from litigation. I don't feel too retired though as I entered a graduate program for an MFA in creative writing and teach a comp class in exchange for my assistantship/scholarship. A very nice perq is access to the 32 million dollar rec center with state of the art resistance equipment, cardio theater, and the budget to keep the place spotless. Had my first poem published last month though I intend to focus on fiction. DW is 57 and retired from teaching first grade.
