    I always thought of employment as at least partly a way to do something to move the world forward at least a little, partly a source of challenge and partly a source of income. When I achieved a measure of financial independence, I took a (somewhat poorly)
    paid position at a nonprofit whose mission I wanted to advance. I also thought it important to demonstrate to my kid that work is not optional; at least for people in our situation. I canít imagine the misery of doing something you hate for decades. I guess Iíve had a charmed life in that respect.

    I'm currently reading The Dutch House by Ann Patchett. She is one of my favorite contemporary authors and I'm enjoying the book very much.

    Our Revolution by Bernie Sanders. The first and smaller part is autobiography, the second part policy proposals along with the rationale for them. He is very eager to give credit to everyone who helped his campaign, and getting into all the names is where I sometimes lost interest.
