Lastly! (I thought I'd just do this separately because the content of this comment is wholly separate from the others.) I actually read your blogs pretty frequently and have always appreciated the content, partly because it ISN'T as polished as some other blogs, where they seem to have The Right Answer. You're figuring it out and I love that there seems to be so much room for error, for a completely different implementation of how you think you would best be living your life. But with this blog post - not even so much the No Middle post - I felt a little uncomfortable. The combination - not that one or the other is bad in themselves - of your focus on work and the toning down of travel somehow irked me and I couldn't really figure out why. I pushed it aside and went back to my own life to figure it out while showering or discussing philosophy with friends some other time. But I came upon this documentary called Happy on Netflix, which was an afterthought of doing some mindless chores. However, I became more and more fixated on the screen and I'm less than halfway through and I had to pause the movie to post the recommendation to you. I absolutely never post on forums, other people's blogs, etc., and I don't even reasonably expect you to read this short book of a comment, let alone watch the documentary, but I felt compelled to bring it to your attention. I think it brings up points about happiness and priorities that are slowly draining from all the of the blogs I read, and might give you another perspective from left field that will either have a profound effect on your priorities or reaffirm your resolutions. I hope you put it high up on your Must Watch list. Either way, I feel better now, and will go back to my movie.
