    In a perfect world, what would your "work" be?

    This question has been on my mind. Assuming that the most important items/needs in your life are covered to your satisfaction, what would your occupation, job, work, livelihood be? At least, what would you do or try first?

    For example, I have a disabled and special-needs child who will never be independent, so my given is that her therapies, equipment, supervision, and medical needs would magically be met. I only say "magically met" because when I daydream of possibilities, her care always stands in front of anything I might dream up, and if I assume I have all she needs, I can let my daydreams fly.

    So - what would it be in a perfect situation? My guess is that many will answer in the direction of the arts...

    I'll go first...
    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

    Travel, travel, travel and take foreign language classes everywhere I went. I would stay in one place just long enough to get the feeling that it is time to move on, and then go, however long or short that might be. Somewhere along the line, find some kind of translation work niche.

    I would still have home base, though. I need some place to store my stuff, and I kinda like my stuff. And home would be here when I needed a break for a while from all the footloose-ness.

    I'm torn between writing and working behind the scenes in awareness for multiple diseases. I do actually write, albeit I haven't finished my opus thanks to real life.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
