Day #27 – If there were no restrictions such as money or employment, where would you most like to live?
As time continues to drag Mrs. B and me closer to the unknown realm of retirement we have had many discussions about this very same question. If there were truly no restrictions…meaning that time could not play the antagonist to this scenario… this answer would be a simple one.
To return to the life we knew as children. Surround ourselves with a simpler existence. Before the Internet invaded every waking moment. Before stupidity became the normal and we elected our leaders on their ability to tweet to the masses instead of their ability to lead a nation. Before we demanded that they not say the Pledge of Allegiance in schools and wonder why our children do not respect the flag. Before we told our children that it was against the law to pray and yet we are amazed to discover they do not believe in God. Before people demanded free handouts instead of hard work. Before we sued our brothers because we were too stupid to realize that our coffee was hot.
But those days are not reality.
