  What would you do?  
If you could do anything, what would you do?

the Rope Tow

(I wrote the following as an introduction to Starve the Matrix, sometime in 2011.)

Many years ago, I first heard this question, and for most of the intervening years this question remained unanswered.

Also, for all of those years, I assumed this was a factual question, the answer to which would be relatively simple, such as, "I'd like to ski at all the best ski resorts."

Now that I'm retired, I've had more time to ponder this question, and now realize it is actually an essay question, and requires a little more paper on which to reply.

That's me in the middle

Of course, being the age of the Internet, I've dispensed with using paper, and thus this website.

About the time these photos were taken, was when I first realized that I'd never have kids. How that realization came about, I'm still trying to understand fully, but nevertheless, it was even then a strong conviction which stayed with me for the rest of my life.

So, there you have it, two (no kids & skiing) of the top 10 reasons how I've made it this far in my escape from the Matrix, and lived to tell about it!
