Thoughts About Work

I have been a civil servant in Finland for over 15 years. I recently returned to my office, to do the same job I have done since March 2000. An absence of 4 years should have given me an insight as to how exactly I feel about this, right?

Except that it hasn't. I have mixed feelings. I feel great, sure, to have a steady, interesting, hectic at times, purposeful, creative at best job with some very decent and like-minded colleagues. I do.

But I miss f r e e d o m. To come and go, to do any job I manage to get and keep. To learn totally new trades. I miss the feeling of being lost and slow to learn. I miss the not being so steady. Why?
