When I retired at the beginning of 2007, I stopped wearing my wristwatch.
I didn’t put it back on until I took a short term contract job in February of this year. At the end of the contract, I again stopped wearing the watch.
I guess, in a way, it’s a symbolic gesture.
I’m no longer tied quite so tightly to the clock, to a routine.
If I need to know what time it is, there’s a clock on my cell phone, in my camera, on the dash of my car, truck, and motorhome, on the back wall of my motorhome, on the TV, computer, microwave — you get the drift.
I don’t need the watch for me to be able to keep track of time.
Not wearing it is pretty much symbolic of a little more freedom.
Is there something you do or don’t do that is symbolic of something?
