I used to be passionate about politics but have come to accept that yes, "politics is Hollywood for ugly people". I used to be heavily involved in the financial world as well. As a California boy, I was often up at 5am for the start of pre-market trading, and I often stayed up until nearly midnight for the end of Asian trading. Then shortly after 3/11 I gave up my fledgling career to dedicate my efforts to residents of NE Japan. Poorer than ever before from a financial standpoint, blessings of happiness, contentment, and a sense of purpose have filled me more now in poverty than ever did in times of material wealth.
