    I dont usually like to start a topic but probably you guys can share your opinion. Now that I am forty four, I start to feel a little bit unsure about the direction of my life. Call it mid life crisis or whatever. I keep fantasizing about a simpler life in a farm, living with nature and raising live stock. I found my self day dreaming of life that is less complicated and giving up my stressful sales/marketing job despite the job pay me well and respectability. I becoming obses with movie that deal with this subject like "The Good Years with Russel Crowe and "Under the Tuscan Sun" mostly dealing about a successful people from the city who move to some small house in the rural area and find peace and happiness there.

    Eventhough I was a farm boy, but I never really have any experience on being a farmer and not sure how to acheive such a ridiculos ambitions. Being gay, mean life will be intolerable in some conservative society where a farm community is. Further more can I even make a living being a farmer nowaday. Sometimes I feel like a fool, just like Eddie Albert in the tv series Green Arches , but somehow the thought refuse to go and I cant stop thinking about it.

    Opinion , please.

    It sounds like you are examining your life, identifying what's meaningful to you, etc. This is a worthy enterprise at any age. I'm a big believer that the staus quo is not a god spot to be in for long periods of time. Good luck.
