I think Linda Caroll nailed it. We’re selling a priceless gift we can never get back for some undetermined future that’s looking bleaker and bleaker every day.
I watched my wife of almost 20 years slowly fade away almost ten years ago. I lost all interest in what I did for a living on that day. But, I had four kids to get to adulthood so I kept doing it. And dreaming of running away. In 155 days, I’m making that dream happen. Undoubtedly, I’ll be writing about how that all turns out right here on the pages of Medium.
This was a great piece and I think it’s a worthy question to ask. Both of ourselves, and of the society we’ve created.
