I don't have to commute, so I have much more time with my family.

Alan Alda and his wife Arlene are two of the most life-affirming people I've ever met. He espoused equal rights for women while producing, writing, acting in and directing 'M*A*S*H'; he used to commute between the set and home because he didn't want to disrupt his kids' schooling.
I had an insanely long commute - New York to D.C. - when I worked at 'National Geographic.'
