Nirvana or not?

I hate being a free-lancer, it was not always so. Today my present gig, close to Basel,  is finished and done. Now what - back to the cows where my appartement is? And then what? I am tired of improvising life in a society that leaves hardly any room for improvisotianatial artists at large... Now I dream about a steady job at "Joe`s Garage", changing oil, repairing a clutch. But I am not a mechanic, so forget that. OK, not all is bleak - I do have some good leads within my field of work. But it is kind of tiersome to start all over again. Blessed be the burgeois folk who have one job for a lifetime (and then a pention to retire). I do not live in that world (by choice) but I still envy "the other side".

"..... these are the cows of the world. blessed be the cows..... cows seem happy enough, but that is because they are cows, and cannot imagine being anything but cows. you, oh bohemian traveller, are not a cow, so could not be content living the life of a cow. i do share your frustration, though. sometimes i too envy the cows, but i know i cannot be one.

...well, I try to send the tune today.
Hey, I tell ya what
come here, we can make music, can do some job with me on the surfboards
and also can do some carpentry or like that in this town
also, with Euros you can live a normal life for very long time here.

-S America is a vast continent so here in the South is very different than in the North countries (reality, weather, music, society, ethnics groups)is like compare east Europe with the west one.

As I have said to you in an earlier post, I envy your lifestyle in many ways... traveling so often, and without borders and fences. I often feel constricted in my office job. The steadiness can be comforting at times, but also exhausting.

Stay free, Zee. I doubt you would enjoy life any other way.

There's definitely pain and worry involved for those of us whose lifetime habit is frequent self re-invention but the benefits are often profound. I enjoyed reading Gfid's answer too.
