The Meaning of Life?

Having posted on the question of the meaning of work, and pointed to the movie About Schmidt, in my search for a link to the movie I found this clip that I think sets this question up nicely. In this clip, near the end of the movie, Warren Schmidt writes to his "friend," a young man in a far off land whom he has sponsored, reflecting on his life -- and its meaning. He writes this, having lived his life totally wrapped up in work. Now, retired, his wife dead, and his daughter married, what is the meaning of life?
