I don't "live", I don't know really how to live. I think I could "live", exist, still be alive, without working. But I wouldn't be very happy, nor healthy. I lived homeless at a time shortly after I lost my scholarship. This was some years back, but I still "worked" to survive, just not a stable job, and not always within legal, honest, activities. I don't think you can get away from working. Living is working. But I live and work to play. The more I can play, the happier I am. If I can transform the "working" into playing to live, then I think I've found the jackpot. Hasn't happened yet. I got my tricks and stuff, though that help me get through rough days.
