All or Nothing

If the money is good, then why do I want something else? Is it just human nature to be dissatisfied?

I think they pay me a whole lot of money to use my brain and keep myself behind my desk. My eyes get tired of the pixels and my back hates the confinement. 

Beach dreaming, yoga missing selfishness. I do play my flute. The notes sound so fat, and for once I don't want to be tied to the music. I let my fingers caress the keys and my breath linger wherever it pleases. I turn my back to the stand and stare out the window as the notes sing for me. 

What have I given up in my ruthless quest for security and independence? Nobody hears the music because I only play when I feel free.
