I am loving retirement.  I can't remember feeling so relaxed and "In control" before.  After a year of travel, reading, and generally enjoying life, I've started to do some consulting.  For the next six months I'm handling marketing and fund raising for Leadership Wisconsin.   I hope you can come to the conference in Green Bay April 24-25: conference.leadershipwisconsin.org  I never want to work full time again, but it's fun to do enough to keep in the loop and see colleagues.  If you hear of anyone who needs a writer/editor/speaker/trainer/baker, let me know.
