The Thoughts On Life BlogFrom Where I Sit, are Richard’s written thoughts, looking at life from a retired point of view. He talks about how things have changed, both for the good and bad, since he was a younger man and how he sees things going forward in the future.  Topics include music, songwriting, finance, technology,  and as the title says, thoughts on life.
