Response to KittyWampus (Reply #24)

25. Yeah, I've known people who've backpacked across Europe, too

They didn't have jobs or debts or responsibilities, so of course they could pick up and go wherever the hell they wanted. Must be nice. Most people never get a chance to live in that world.

I think a huge issue is creativity. Most of my friends back in the days of living hand to mouth were artists. Some people can look at a pile of rags and see rags… others can see the potential for a quilt.

Others look at it and say "what a trite and patronizing slogan to make people feel worse about not enjoying great luck and good opportunities."
