    Actually..... what I love about W2 is how the local history is still very much alive. The families that settled the valley still live here with streets, buildings and sporting venues named after them. We are still very much a farming community with an easy pace of life.

    Not Bunion said, "I am 61, how that happened still baffles me." Man, can I ever relate to that! Drinking less, using cannabis more (up from nearly nothing), and eating healthy. Sounds familiar in this thread. I FINALLY figured-out that treating my body like a rental car is not a good idea so I'm doing yoga, pilates, sleeping more, and not willing to hang my ass out over the edge of a major physical injury very often, if ever. Seeing parents decline mentally and physically has also been a real wakeup call. All of a sudden time feels shorter, and perhaps I care more about living the best possible life now than ever before. Pulling the plug on fulltime employment this fall at 58 ... fuck it. Mrs Funk likes her job and wants to keep working for awhile and I'm going to do what I like to do while I still can. Hope to find a different source of fulfillment than a career I am burned-out on and isn't providing that to me anymore anyway. Hope to meet and ski with some more of you old fuckers this winter

    My brother's house once contained two adolescent girls and wife going through menopause - he referred to it as The Perfect Storm.

    Between the phone bill and air conditioning bill, he musta just been scraping by.

    I think Old Larry went thru that, poor guy.

    Interesting thread. You all are a resilient bunch. I'm 30 and in some respects, I'm over it. I have a decent job that keeps me modestly engaged and allows me to live comfortably, if not extravagantly; I have a pretty respectable amount socked away for retirement given my age, and (knock on wood) I generally have my health/physical well being in good order, but that's about it. I've always been what could charitably be described as astutely pessimistic, but I've crossed the line into being awfully negative an awful lot of the time. Not a whole lot excites me about getting out of bed each morning.

    I think part of it for me is that I'm over living a selfish existence. I spent the better part of the last decade doing what I wanted, when I wanted, and on my terms. If you didn't like it, don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. Needless to say, that gave me a lot of time to pursue things that interested me, albeit on my own. As I gain a (modest) amount of perspective with time, I see how ultimately, the rewards for pursuing a self-centered existence are fleeting and somewhat hollow. I have some confidence that I can get to the point where life feels fulfilling instead of like going through the motions. Sometimes the reward lies more in the struggle than the achievement of the goal.

    You'll never come to respect yourself unless you build something meaningful, overcome adversity or give something meaningful to a cause you care about. You only get meaning in life from sacrifice. It can't be bought.

    Adolescence seems early for menopause?

    Maybe for you that is the case. Most of us are just not that deep. Glademaster has the one thing no amount of $$$ can buy and that is time. And even that is not guaranteed.

    For sure it felt that way for a bit, but I sought treatment and finally got it licked.

    Hmmmmmmmmm, you're in the greater Seattle area right? At the risk of sounding like I think CBD is a cure-all which I don't, if your job allows you might try a Craft Elixir CBD gummie once a day for 10 days (package contains 10) and see how you feel. You might be surprised at the positive upticks.

    Make sure you get the CBD gummies and not the THC and check the batch analysis sticker on the package. I've purchase the Pineapple and Berry which both have very low THC (about a 10:1 ratio) but once I bought the Cherry and it was 1:1 which def. gave me a hazy kinda buzz. I was still very functional but would drift off into thought sometimes and felt more laid back.

    That's actually good to hear. Elaine and I have to make it out there sometime.

    I lived in the basement apartment of a house with momos upstairs. They were the squarest, whitest people I had ever met. They were so white they were almost transparent. They gave all of their money to the church so they could live in this shitty rental with heathens below. I guess god was testing them.

    Was going to post something similar.

    Not that I felt exactly unfulfilled before, but having a kid brought such clarity to the value of devoted teaching, love, and sacrifice... and has deepened the earthly experience more than I could have ever expected.

    But I still wish for time.
