It's true. You know as a Retiree when it really irritates you to give your Occupation, especially on Facebook, and Facebook is reluctant to accept your creativity? Just because I've retired I haven't suddenly lost my identity and then you have that sudden realisation that identity is emotionally charged with your paid occupation.
Well, I've grown into my new occupational title. I now call myself a 'Fulltime Adult Music Student: Flute and Piano'.
I've designed my own curriculum and I create my own course hours, all except the 30 minutes a week that I spend with my teacher. You can read about it here on one of my other blogs called inthekeyofsixtyplus.
My theory is that it is never too late to make up for something that you didn't do as a child, that you missed out on. If you have enough creativity and imagination you can work out a way to fill a deficit and complete yourself. For me it's a musical background.
Now, I've got some pieces to work on. I'd better get back to work.
