Death and Vacation

This vacation is the first we have been on since tuings went south with the business and although things have somewhat improved money is constantly on my mind here. I have always been scandalized by the sums of money that are spent on vacation but after living o. Thw razor’s edge I have slipped into an almost neurotic obsession.

My preoccupation is, of course, obvious to my wife and she said something that struck me the other day as we crossed from Bocas del Toro to Almirante. In essence she asked me to compare my fear of not having enough money to a fear of dying. Do I sit around worrying about not all of the ways I might die? If not then why do I worry constantly about not having enough? Why do I worry about not being able to provide?
