    I'm with you. Starting families ties you down for decades. Then you reach a point where your kids are grown - or almost grown - and you now have disposable income and alot of time freed up to do the things you've been wanting to do 4 decades.

    I don't think it applies men only, women even more so have the same mid-life crisis feelings.

    Joseph Campbell, a renown mythologist, said, the life itself has no meaning other than the meaning you give it. Get out there and experience your life, and make whatever you want out of it. The purpose of life is to experience life itself.
