Six years into my retirement as a full time academician, I was finally able to escape the nagging feeling that I should be doing something to justify my existence (in my childhood, at dinner time, my father invariably went around the table asking each of his five children what they had done to justify their existence that day). I suspect too many of us have discovered that it’s hard to escape our parents no matter how long we out-live them. At any rate, I think I’ve finally managed, in my seventh year of retirement, to conquer the guilt I feel every time I pick up a professional journal or newsletter and am reminded of what I’m not doing.
