starting over, once again

I'm going to be unemployed for a while.

I decided that I couldn't continue working at what I was doing. I am capable at my present line of work, but the stultifying existence of my entire life being centered in front of a monitor, shuffling abstractions for others is just not what I want to do right now.

I'm very fortunate that I have some savings and have had good fortune in my personal and professional life, so I'm able to do this for a little while to focus on other things.

During this time I intend to focus on improving my health and personal relationships. If I find something that is interesting to work on, I'll work on it. If not, I won't.

Worst case is I have to go back and get a job somewhere, hopefully a bit wiser and refreshed, although my strong preference is to find a way to earn less and live more.
