Patrick Eibergen Writes New Chapters in His Retirement Story
Have you ever envisioned what your life would be like in retirement? Will you travel? Write a book? Spend more time with friends? Pick up a new hobby? Work part time? There is no right or wrong answer, but retirement is like a book – there are countless books to choose from and several chapters to read.
After retiring from teaching about ten years ago, Patrick Eibergen got to work writing the many chapters of his retirement. He literally wrote a book, “Sleep in Heavenly Peace - The Art of Praying Away Insomnia.” Knowing
that he needed purpose in his days, he continued to ‘write chapters,’ honing his bird watching hobby, spending time with friends, regularly walking along Chicago’s lakefront, substitute teaching at nearby CPS schools, learning to speak Spanish, and the highlight of it all – traveling to Spain as often as possible.
