When you are no longer a journalist…

Comes the day when we all have to retire…from work.  At that point are we still journalists?  Or former journalists?  Or do we morph into something else as we settle into our new lifestyle.

My life is divided into segments.  Child.  Student.  Photographer.  Broadcast news cameraman.  Teacher.  Freelance VJ.  And now retired…and no longer a journalist (although I still shoot stories and post them online for myself and area non-profits).

So I’m taking up a label my bud Kathleen used for years.  She got it right.  She was a Visual Storyteller (aka VS) which really is the same as a VJ with, I think, more wiggle room.

…let the storytelling continue and never end…
