So far in my life, I’ve been a warehouse picker, a commodities trader, a plantation owner, an investment banker, Chairman, Manager, mortgage banker, venture capitalist, entrepreneur, telemarketer, door-to-door salesman, and non-profit manager. I have counseled Presidents and bribed Vice-Presidents. I have skirted near the extremes of affluence and poverty, and struggled in the in-between. I have dined in the most expensive restaurants and dumpster-dived for scallops and Jimmy Dean sausage.
On my 55th birthday:
I realized I no longer enjoyed, nor believed in the story I was in, so I decided to write my own.
I left my job, and walked away from a promise of a generous lifetime pension in exchange for my freedom.
I surrendered my possessions to rid myself of distractions.
I embarked on a journey.
Because I share Dianne Ackerman’s sentiment that: “The great affair, the love affair with life, is to live it as variously as possible, to groom one’s curiosity like a high-spirited thoroughbred, climb aboard, and gallop.”
And William Blake’s: “He who desires but acts not breeds pestilence.”
Unencumbered, with a glimpse of immaculate sand awaiting my footprints, I now walk on the edge of uncertainty.
Mine, is a spiritual journey, in which I intend to question all the conventions of our modern world – all the ideologies, myths, and illusions that shape our understanding of ourselves and the world – and think everything anew, as if for the first time: What is happiness? What is love? Why death? What’s the meaning of our short presence on this earth? How can we live with greater joy, purpose, and presence?
I am headed towards a new orientation to life, if you will.
Thinking, writing, reading, cooking, dancing, living life to the fullest.
