Thank you for visiting and sharing your comments. I’d also appreciate your advice on improving this relatively new page.
My name is Don Mulcare. I’m on permanent vacation (retired) after doing 35 to life in a state institution (The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth as a professor of biology.)
Retirement is a chance to do something else, especially the things that could not happen while working full time. The vegetable garden has fewer weeds and more vegetables. The compost heap runs hot and heavy. Travel is more practical and writing can change from occasional articles, lab handouts and letters of recommendation to fiction, book reviews and comments on travels.
Life is an adventure. That includes broken arms and making mistakes. It is better to learn from the adventure than dwell on the downside.
