Bad Poetry

Journal Entry

So I wrote a poem in Go this morning. It’s a calculator that tells me when I will achieve my poetic voice based on the experience of e. e. cummings. I’m making a lame attempt to learn the Go programming language. What else is a retired person supposed to do besides write bad poetry? I probably should go delete my modules on CPAN, but that would be way to much work for a retired person…

Which prompts me to ask myself, do I miss my work now that I have put that behind me. The answer without hesitancy is “no.” Well not really. I don’t miss going to work, but I do miss the intellectual challenge. I make up for that now by reading a lot, and for the most part, that is an excellent stand-in, but there are times when I just want to sit down and write some code.
