You sound as if you'd take the job.

I would. For a spell, if I were younger. If you went into a New York Law firm next fall, what experience would you have? An extension of what we gave you here at Yale. Nothing wrong with that, but it is limiting. However, if you go to Alaska, you'll be thrown into problems that haven't been defined yet. It's a real frontier, an opportunity to beat new paths.

Alaska ~ James Michener
It's amazing, really, the range of choice we have over the various aspects of our lives. I think it's good to be bold, and to be fearlessly open minded. But also, don't be afraid to make a choice.
