    I love my new permaculture life, don't think for a moment I don't. However, when I worked for that Gaming corporation somewhere in Silicon valley, maybe even in redwood shores, ca I had the time of my life... ..but missed my family so.

    We had Starbucks coffee, a cafe with real chef's... ..no gmo crap food here, exercise facility, basketball courts, volleyball courts, saunas, masseuses, free tickets DAILY to things like Sports events or music concerts.. or even the best... E3 & the Playboy mansion passes, 401k, stock options, health plan that included hand, eye, dental, life insurance etc. IT WAS THE LIFE.... ..I LOVED IT.

    But I also had to work sometimes for 20 hour days for months on end... ..I would sleep at the office and miss important things.

    Being part of a corporate tool was great, but I agree, the world needs to change, and it is not going to be easy or pretty.
