in reply to A reflection or two on PM life

I could write a long essay but I'll condense it (so rare for me): you need to get out of the house.

Find some interests outside of PerlMonks, the Internet and computers in general. Just as balancing on one foot can become tiring after a while, so can focussing your energies on one thing -- you get stale.

My solution is family (two step-sons, 11 and 15 years old), friends and music (I sing with a group called the Toronto Northern Lights, silver medallists at the last two International Conventions).

I don't know if you belong to a church -- you can get great solace and sense of community from going to church. Maybe take some night courses in something totally unrelated to your main interests. Make a habit of getting books or CDs from your local library. Volunteer somewhere.

Life is short. Get busy!
