A Regular Job

Run, rabbit run.
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done--
Don't sit down. It's time to dig another one.

I've done regular work. I've had a six figure salary. I've done cool things with official sanction. I've been the rabbit.

Today is another day, and I work another way, making more money without anyone to tell me what time to do this or that and without a boss to please with the exception of myself. The things I do are easily as interesting and the people and situations are challenging without being onerous.  An obnoxious client's bill is 3x what a nice client is charged and while clients are not usually treated this way, I can fire them just as easily as they can fire me.

And life is much better. I'm not a rabbit anymore.

Simply an Observation
