What Do You Live For?

by The Usual Suspect

What are the three most important things to you? (Family is only one category, and is kinda a GIMME anyway)

1. My Family (pets are a given here)
2. My Integrity
3. My Country

All are equally important to me

to feel and experience personal achievement and success.

1) The United States of America.

2) My personal integrity.

3) Solving problems. The hope that the software I write or the math that I do will help make the world a better place.

Family being a gimme, then:

Health-Physical,spiritual, intellectual. "Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone".

Freedom-grossly taken for granted.
See Joni Mitchell lyric above.

People-past,present,future. So often the wind beneath my wings.

Don't know the answer to that one anymore Ryan. I used to think I did, now I am lost. God(s) bless you Ryan. ♥

Family's a gimme, but it's still number one. Friends, too. The people I care about and trust.

Something that's not exactly freedom--a combination of freedom and responsibility. Independence, I guess.

Life. I don't know a better word for it--those times when something clicks and you lose yourself in the world. Smelling fresh cinnamon rolls, seeing a hawk swoop past the window, reading an excellent book, hashing out a new project or plan with friends over coffee. The little things and the big things.

Also, z's got it right.

PS: Am I just in a mood or is Musica Ricerata, II a metaphor for life?

And also - I think the things most important to us change as we age

3. Friends

1. God (if he/she exists)

2. Liberty (freedom would be nice, but it's impossible in a materially-derived existance)

3. Human Potential (what's liberty without options)

3+. Homoerotic asphyxiation (if God doesn't exist)
