Giving It Up
Cal had been working as a stock broker on Wall Street for twenty years. With increasing stress from a financial crisis, his job hadn’t been easy recently.
And then the Great Shift happened.
He was transported halfway around the world to a small village where most inhabitants were unaffected. For a time he thought about telling people who he really was that he wasn’t really the daughter of one of the farmers in the village. Then he’d find a way to a city, and return to his own life. But as he learned more and more of the ways of the village, he began to appreciate their simple life with very few stresses. Sure, he’d abandon a lot by giving up his old life, but he was a lot happier now.
