Where the Sidewalk Ends

Shel Silverstein's writing had a profound impact on me and my family. Thumbing through his classic Where the Sidewalk Ends recently brought back some nice memories, and then set me musing in another direction. My own "sidewalk's end"—retirement and where it might lead me. My generation of lawyers—the Baby Boomers—expected to graduate, start our careers and then work 40 years for the same firm, doing basically the same thing, with increasing responsibility. Then we figured we'd retire and start living the life we always dreamed was out there.
