John Merrow retired as a national education journalist a while back, and he has been trying to figure out how to find a new  purpose in life.

In this post, he describes his different efforts and how he found an activity that has kept him very busy and satisfied.

I should add that Merrow puts a great deal of time into his annual post on April 1. When he wrote about his decision to join the board of Pearson, he fooled a lot of people, including me!
