This is my first post.

I have just given up careering and have changed from salary to 30 hours per week. I am no longer anxious about this. When I had a career I used to write reports that were altered to fit the prevailing myths and prejuduces before release. Now I am trying to write more cleverly, but less.

Let me summarise:
"I don't think you can buy luxury with money any more. Time is luxury. Luxury is hard to give up once you have become accustomed to it."

Pithy and profound. Worthy of Confucius or PT Barnum.

I have been living in luxury for 2 months now.
