The future is certainly tense at work. Our head teacher is retiring next week. I took these picture at her (first) retirement do on Friday. For her the future is about having time to do the things she’s always wanted to do. The rest of us are more focussed on the more immediate future and the arrival of a new boss.
While preparing for the formal retirement celebrations I was introduced to this poem by Constantine Cavafy. I love it. I think it speaks to all of us no matter where we are on our life’s journey.
I love this version of it too.
