What is Freedom?

This question has been going around in my head, with no clear answer emerging. It then occurred to me, why not ask you all. So here I am. Hoping you can help me.

I mean, this morning I was "requested" by my dear wife to help her with the gardening, and she knows I hate gardening. Sure, I could have said no but then surely I would have been in the dog house for what would feel like eternity.

Am I really "free"?

Then as I did my Home Depot run this morning, a car passed by which had the following bumper sticker: "I Owe I Owe, So Off to Work I Go?".

Is this driver really "free"?

As I reflect on these and many other examples from my own life, I am beginning to wonder: What is freedom? What does it feel like?

What are your thoughts?


PS Happy July 4th.
