Sympathetic, well-written posting.

Very well written, John Chambers. All spot on. At some point, one comes to understand that just getting by and being thankful to be alive in a nice natural environment is preferable to the daily struggle of trying to hang on to the dream that was once real in urban or suburban centers. I know many people over 50 who have reached this conclusion and abandoned their former career for a life in a more rural and less expensive place to live. An acre of land, a vegetable garden, chicken shack, maybe if they’re into it hunting and fishing for some food, some internet sales on etsy, whatever. It feels like the 30s again for a lot of people, but at least they do have food and a stable roof over their heads. Our parents were not all so lucky in the Great Depression.
