Taking up a Cause

    I'm not interested in taking up any "causes" either....My philosophy is like Rick's in Casablanca.

    I wasted time in the Witness religion, plus I worked at a full-time job my whole life. I gave enough.....While others may want to get involved in various things and volunteering, etc., and imagine that a retiree would want to, I'm NOT interested.

    The only time you would see me volunteer is if there were an emergency in my community or helping neighbors after a hurricane or something like that.

    I think your cause should be to see more concerts. I think you should start this weekend.

    LongHairGal- Okay, so you give me more to add to my answer.
    "No, I will be content to work and get by then retire and sit in the sun with a good book and a cold water. Other than random acts of kindness and helping out in a crisis or disaster, no specific causes for me. I picked up a specific cause once before, and I was so deeply involved in it, really thought it was important and put so much of myself into it, but it turned out that I was SO WRONG. I don't want to do that again."

    JRK- Okay, I could go that route too.
    "Well, I am involved in a cause. I am spreading peace and love and rock 'n roll, one concert at a time."
