I suppose that I got a fresh start on life after November 8th @5am 2010. I am unencumbered by house, mortgage, wife, childern, step childern, half childern, ex-wives or any of the other material entrapments we get ourselves into over the course of our journey. There is only me left.
I often am ignorant of the fact that the decks are clear, and there is smooth sailing ahead for me. I no longer have the excuses of people, places and things that distract me from all the narly cool stuff I want to do before I cash out.
Freedom is what I make of it.
