What are we going to do when the work is all done?

What are we going to do?

When the projects are all finished …

When the kids are raised …

Why do we do these things and when should we stop?

When everything that is or was work or a commitment … when all of that is finished. What happens then? What’s left? What’s important? What are we working towards?

Should I keep building onto the house, even if there is plenty of space to live in? Do we keep making money, even if all the bills are paid and we have plenty?

Exactly where do we get off the hamster wheel? We could go forever (at least until we die), or maybe we could just get off now.

It seems that many, if not most, people never move on to anything past work and I can’t decide whether it is just human nature to be constructing and fixing things or if we just get stuck there from habit. Is it all a means to an end, or did we lose sight of whatever was at “an end” to begin with?

(btw this really reminds me of a conversation I had with friend and blogger Josh Sweet. I wonder if he has anything to say one the subject.)
