On Retiring: I might stop at some point.

On Retiring: ?I might stop at some point. I m coming to the end of the line. I have to admit it. When you have more of the road behind you than ahead, it becomes a very focusing thing. You start thinking about the world. I ve never been to Africa or South America. I ve never seen a rhinoceros. I m not saying that entertainment is a childish thing but, in time, you do grow up. I ve achieved my childhood dream. Now the dream is just about over. I m still alive, still vibrant. I d like to see what other dreams I can come up with. (2014) – Bette Midler Read More
