I was invited to the retirement party for a design client I’ve had for about seventeen years. This city view en route to the party was mainly selected because there was a convenient bench near the corner of Moorgate and London Wall. The people were fellow train and tube travellers. Although my friend seems to have planned lots of absorbing activities it made me think about how devastating retirement can be for other people who have had a very fulfilling work life but find it difficult to make the transition to a work-free existence. Those of us who enjoy sketching are so lucky to have something that’s so enjoyable and fulfilling.
