Baltimore, Maryland, United States
It is once again time for Greg’s birthday entry-
One can always rely on family to ask the questions everyone else is quietly wondering about:
“Greg, it’s been almost 4 years now.
Aren’t you worried about the world just passing you by?”
The exact words change from member to member but it’s a question family members have asked us more than once over the past 2 years.
And by “world” we know what’s meant:
Career, Paychecks, 401Ks, retirement, medical / optical / dental benefits, long term financial plan, you name it. A life beyond the next 2 months and a gig that falls into the category of “reliable income.” Something I can expect to have for an entire taxable year that will pay a wage somewhere near what someone of “our experience” should be getting. One that would possibly involve trading in the sails for a desk…or at least a consistent cell phone number.
Freaking money people. Cash. An income. Jobs. Mortgages and the like.
Or as some call it “a REAL life.”
When are we going to get off our butts and stop letting REAL LIFE pass us by?
