Why can’t the ordinary person be like that? Why can’t we just break free of death and taxes?
Maybe we can. We have just this one life. We need to use it to do everything we ever thought of doing, otherwise it’s a life well wasted. No point in that.
So, don’t do that job that pays better instead of that which you love. Don’t be stuck in the traffic when you really want to be climbing rocks. Don’t sit writing financial statements when you really want to be writing poetry!
Or maybe I am thinking these thoughts because I have a job and know it pays off the debt.
