How to Live a Rich Rewarding Life -OR- Another Remaindered Attempt



A noble pursuit.
Thank goodness he has the financial freedom to underpin his gradual divestiture.
Is that jaded? Probably. I come by that the old fashioned way.

While his voyage of discovery is laudable, the treasure he claims to have found is the place where most of us have always lived. It's also a place that was ridiculed and marginalized by his ascent. I'm not particularly impressed that in his epiphany he seems to have swapped elites. Gordon Gekko for Desmond Tutu is a start, but is it really a change?

"...the man who had it all." If the original premise is flawed, all that follows is flawed. He did not have it all. He had nothing and his epiphany is late in coming. What the hell did his parents teach him? As far as the web of life realization, did he never sit quietly on a soft summer day and listen to the trees whisper poetry to each other? Perhaps even a quick take from the Old Testament, "Be still and know that I am God." You are a treasure my friend. Thanks for your oasis where wandering spirits may pause and consider wondrous things.

don't know if it's really a change but the trailer was very cool.
