Goodbye to my little Ford Festiva

I loved the growth of our small company (C5 Performance Ignitions) in 2014

For 2015 I look forward to the renovation of my recently purchased late 60's V700 (my first Guzzi!)

I guess I should answer my own questions:

[1] Cigarets - starting today

[2] Almost debt free including the mortgage - January 2015 is it.  

[3] More freedom (from debt slavery) and everything that comes with it.  Increased wisdom to help others in need.  More letting go of holding back to truly love beyond my current abilities.

[1] 2014 is helping me say goodbye to debt, almost there

[2] I love 2014 for new experiences and new friends. And getting a motorcycle again after almost 2 years with out a bike.

[3] I welcome the chance to get out and tour more. I also welcome the new challenges that my job is bringing me.

I'd like to get me some of that increased wisdom.  Where do you go to get some?

Goodbye to several dear friends that passed away.  Keenly felt is my buddy Jack.

Loved travel in 2014:  Las Vegas with daughters in March to celebrate youngest turning 21, NYC in June, and the recent Christmas two weeks.

2015 I will set intentions for motorcycle camping, a family trip to Hawaii to celebrate the college graduation of my youngest, and just perhaps my own retirement one way or another, by choice, or thrown into the street due to the oil bidness cycling down.

Good-bye to full-time employment: just teach one class per semester now; nice easy pace considering I no longer have any administrative responsibilities, no more student advisees, and there's no more pressure to publish. For now I have given up lab and field research--just don't have the fire for it anymore.

Still love teaching, but the "leaders" in the field of higher education are urging sweeping changes in methods; I'm now viewed as an anachronism by colleagues despite the fact that students appreciate my approach.

Love MC riding more than ever; have slowed the pace some, but now have more time/freedom to take long rides. Took a few good ones in 2014.

Love the fact that both daughters have successful careers and are now happy moms; will take time to learn how to be a good grand father.

Still love the out-of-doors: next summer will be the year of climbing new-to-me fourteeners in CO and slot canyons in Utah. Am already planning the details of hiking the New Mexico section of the Continental Divide Trail the following summer. Figure I don't have many years left for this sort of thing.

Lost one of my dearest friends--Zoomer; buddy since high school, took many wonderful MC trips together, including a few memorable ones in Mexico.

Q1:  What are you saying good bye to in your life in 2014?
A1:   Debt.  I am now 100% debt free.  Said goodbye to a couple of motorcycles, too.  Still have one, and I'm sure there will be more.

Q2:  What did you love in your life of 2014?
A2:  Pretty much everything.  Well, other than the job.  Really enjoyed the horse camping trip to Northern New Mexico.  I've wanted to ride horses in The Rockies since I was a kid.  Finally checked that one off.  Hope to do it again, sometime.

Q3:  What are you inviting into your life in 2015?
A3:  We have a new dog.  Other than that, more of the same.  Horses and Motorcycles will occupy most every weekend from March into November.
