How Radical Am I?



Whenever we hear the word “radical,” most of us tend to think bad things primarily because a “radical” is usually thought to be a person who advocates thorough or complete or social reform. Or another definition might be a member of a political party or part of a party pursuing such aims.

Some simple definitions of the word “radical” might be:

  • Very new and different from what is traditional or ordinary
  • Very basic and important
  • Having extreme political or social views that are not shared by most people

Were we to use a synonym to describe the word radical – the first one that comes to mind is “Profound!”

However, seeing that I am not a radical person but instead consider myself to be a fun-loving person preferring to read funny or informational material, here is my thoughts on the word “radical”:

The only association I want with the word “radical” is when it is being described as a “free radical.”

Yes, you got it – I will think of this word while having my first cup of coffee in the morning while trying desperately to think about what I want to write about that day. You know, drinking that cup of coffee that contains lots of anti-oxidants that help the body fight those chemicals called free radicals.


These are the only radicals I ever want to be associated with.

Welcome to my blog: I retired in September of 1996 after twenty-five years as an Underwriting Manager (and one year with a smaller insurance company) and have written blog postings on the website prior to setting up this Word Press free site. Having retired almost twenty years ago I have experienced my own retirement transition. I survived and you will too. Oddly enough, now that I have more time, I am discovering various things about myself that I would not have imagined myself doing in retirement. Why does it take so long for, we as individuals, to stop and think about ME!? Join me as I share with you some of the shenanigans we have been up to since retiring. Retirement is and can be a whole lot of fun. Welcome to my site – remember – retirement is not the destination we are seeking – it is the journey! I encourage you to visit often, provide comments, ask questions and add your own insights. We are all on this journey together.
