It took me to a lot of cool places and gave me some incredible memories. Doing it less has left a big void in my life, but I don't really have the desire to do it all the time anymore. Or give it up. 25 years of flying is hard to quit.

I do want to enjoy life while I've got it. But I'm sure not enjoying much as it is now
And this is because you have to work? A lot of people say, if only this were true, then, I will be happy. they are almost universally wrong. Results don't make you happy. The process to get results can make you happy, if you let it. You have no control over results, as the last economic boondoggle so aptly points out. You can control the process though.

Abraham Lincoln said it pretty well: "People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be. I found it to be pretty true in my case.
