I know how Voyager feels

September 19th, 2013 at 04:43 am

You might know that I love following space flights. Perhaps you've heard that Voyager 1 reached interstellar space. What you might not have known is that it reached it about a year ago ... some measurements seemed to tell scientists they were there, some didn't and that's what caused the confusion. Its not like there was a big ol' sign like you see on the interstate.

So it seems to be with financial freedom. One kind of thinks that if they had $xM, then yes. But really, who knows? You could be there or several years out.

The raise kicked in, but I don't think its particularly enough. I'm going to back down my 403B contributions - they will still be quite high, and I will easily get all the match.

This evening I also got a letter for another vaccine study. I had a good experience with the previous one, and the payment for participating is quite nice ($540). I think I will collect more info.

    I read about Voyager last week. I couldn't help but think of the first Star Trek movie.

    Did you see pics of "Space Bat" and now "Space Frog" (last week's viral photo of frog's astounding vertical leap at rocket launch)'s space voyages?

    You made me think of the first movie, and also of Voyager going all alone out of our system and traveling where we've never been before.

    The way our financial system works these days, that is what each of us who strive for intelligent frugality are. Little Voyagers in a financial world where few tread. And this newsletter is our way of sending radio messages. I've reached the "paid off mortgage" nebula, or the planet, "paid off credit cards". And we help each other out with directions as we travel for the most part alone, striving for a peaceful, simple life

    Ok - that's it for my poetic whimsey
