And John makes the right choice again...

What I mean by that is dropping out of society, or at least committing to an alternative way of life while living in society. The first time I made that choice I was 19 years old and it was fairly easy to do, now, ten years later, at 29 years of age, it's a different story. Lo I have traveled through the valley of wanting a career, of wanting stability, hopefully in an industry where my talents would be appreciated, and I felt much fear. Now, that's mostly in the past. There's something about growing older that prompts these sorts of ideas of needing stability. But that's behind me and once more I'm stepping into the unknown, not sure of where it's going to take me. Seattle understands the proposition of living your life---and then working, rather than having your work life be your life, very well, so I'm in good company.
