I am a retired, African-American male, who, by chance, saw the advertisement for the "My Dream Job " contest on the AARP website. Initially, I was hesitant about entering the contest, then realized the possibilities this contest provided.

Become acquainted with their hiring practices and available postions, (4) attend job fairs to research the availability of positions and identify and establish networking contacts. In this context, research local, profeswional organizations and make cold call to establish contacts.
The journaling aspect of this process will, in effect, enable me to communicate with others, who, in many ways are experiencing the same issues that I am. Maintaining a daily journal of experiences will enable me to share my story, my thoughts as I navigate through this transformative process. In particular, as an African-American male, to carefully relate the positive and negative experiences I will encounter. 
I feel that journaling , as an information dissemination tool, is very effective. I am prepared to record my experiences in a daily journal and provide all the information I can concerning my experiences, for the "retiree".
About Me I live in Washington, DC, with my wife and mini-Dachund, Gage. I have two adult daughters, one lives in Germany, where she teaches English and Spanish to military dependents on the secondary level, and my other daughter works at a law firm here in Washington. My wife works at a lobbying firm on K St., in Washington. My wife and I are very fond of traveling, and make a point of visiting Southern California, where I was born and raised, every year, during the late summer. We also enjoy taking a cruise every two years. Our next destination is a Med cruise next year.

Interests:
My main interest is music. Jazz that is, hence the moniker, Jazzman. I was a musician of sorts, many years ago, but circumstances prevented me from following my muse. I intend, however, when I am fully retired, to practice diligently on my trumpet and fluglehorn to the point that I can play to my capability. My second interest is sports. I am a big Washington Redskins football fan. I am looking forward to the coming season with our new coach and hopefully a return to our winning tradition. I am also a soccer fanatic. I am a big fan of the US domestic soccer league, the MLS, especially the Washington, DC team, DC United. I love the natilonal US team and definetely look forward to them achieving stature as a international soccer power in the future. I did volunteer work for the AARP Washington, DC State Office for two and one-half years, ending in 2005. I enjoyed my volunteer work very much.

My Dream Job

September 12, 2002
There are a few dreams I have in life... one is to live in a log cabin with a big front porch and huge kitchen, on a lake in the woods somewhere in southern New England (in other words, the perfect 1980s slasher movie setting). My other dream is to own the kind of business that I would love to visit on a daily basis: a record shop/diner/tea room/movie theatre.
Picture it... you walk in the front door...
