Stay ac­tive – don’t ‘re­tire’

In the Moment - - Escaping -

If we give up the things we love do­ing, and do well, we can lose our pur­pose in life. That’s why it’s so im­por­tant to keep do­ing things of value, mak­ing progress, bring­ing beauty or util­ity to oth­ers, help­ing out and shap­ing the world around us, even af­ter our ‘o cial’ pro­fes­sional ac­tiv­ity has ended. There is, in fact, no word in Ja­panese that means ‘re­tire’, in the sense of ‘leav­ing the work­force for good’, like in English.
