Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
4015 days explores options in life experience scuplture. The understanding that we have certian perods of time to accomplish life goals is presented early in contemporary society (early childhood, elementary school, high school, college, career and family, retirement). The challenge of experiencing and creating family as a provider and participant, choosing experience and connection over immersion in work and aquisition. In a world where many people work 50 hours a week, 48 to 50 weeks a year to buy the good life, I have decided to define an attainable life, and what does it require of the individual. I belive the good llfe requires presence and immersion, more than consumer orientated aquisitions and status symbols.
