I think many people could benefit from familiarising themselves with stoic thinking, particularly here at Medium where I often get the feeling as I browse the front page, that I have entered a digital equivalent of Self Pity City.

Opted for comfortable retirement before I was fifty due to health problems and burn out. Now spend my time writing and goofing around. Home: northern England..
