In December 2019, Real People Presentations closed her doors for business. If I didn’t have the chance to say goodbye, let me say here what a wonderful ride I had working with you over the years. The year 2020 presented us all an array of changes, some chosen, others thrust upon us. I feel lucky to have chosen change.
Retirement is proving to be a shapeshifter. The word that had once implied the end, closure, the race run, has expanded in meaning to include adaptation, continuation, maybe even renaissance. Sprouts of opportunity are popping up all over the place. I’m finally pruning the website and planting a blog. We’ll keep the moniker for a bit longer, as Real People still feels like a part of me, and I’m curious to see if she, like me, has a next chapter in store. ~Louisa Casadei-Johnson
