Thanks again for the input. I do have the option of reducing my hours (and compensation) to 60% or 80%, but on the "make hay" theory, I have tried to stay at 100% to maximize my income while I am still here. What do you think of the alternative scenario (big pay cut for possibly rewarding job)? Am I too close to FI for that to be a good idea? Or should I give it a shot and hope I find something I will like doing for another 5-10 years?

I think that you should continue at 100% to maximize your income while you also search for a more rewarding job. If you are lucky to find something which ignites some passion and you think would be rewarding, then you can truly wrestle with the cost/benefits at that point in time. Keep looking and listen to your feelings, try not to overthink it...
