Can you elaborate on why Lisp made you a better programmer?  Please bear in
mind though that where I am located (and I don't want to relocate) I have a
snowball's chance in hell of making a living out of Lisp so how would
learning Lisp help make me a better developer given I have to work with Java
and C++?

Honestly though, I have trouble staying on top of what is happening in
Java/OO/XML so taking time to learn another language would need to have a
big payback.
