it scares me too. I did it for a time. Now I run a minimally functioning family business and work from home. Way better, although the money was nice when I had it. Systems Analysis was fun but stress levels –> burnout.
I’m 40 miles inland. Not much for the water life. Total opposite in that way. I like land. But I love all the trees here. I was raised in New Jersey USA ’til I was 30: Suburban, people clustered on top of one another.
The thinking space I get here is amazing. You don’t get room to think in suburbs and cities – too much stuff going on, impossible to focus.
