I hear ya. I didn't mention it in my original post, but I had a similar wake-up call: a seemingly very healthy acquaintance (a few years younger than me) died suddenly a few months ago. As we age, those wake-up calls are only likely to increase, until we're the ones making the call. I'd like to make the most of my time on this earth before then -- and, in my case, leaving the corporate life behind is a necessary first step.
