Thanks for the encouragement and advice. It makes sense. Yet weighed
against that is the time and mental energy of attending to such things.
A part of me thinks of a certain person I grew up with who seems to live
fairly carefree with his wife in the mountains of British Columbia
(speaking of smoking up). I imagine him laughing at my full on Ward
Cleaver approach to life and attendant anxiety about remaining
acceptable to the corporate world. Then I think with the time I spent on
career related stuff this year I could have figured out how to install
Plan 9 on my other laptop (imaginary guy in mountains now slaps is
forehead). Well, no doubt there's some middle ground to partly address
the one hand as well as the other.
