Working as an artist, the job requires me to be out in inspiring areas capturing in paint, scenes that most do not get the opportunity to see in their daily lives. like many, work currently consumes every waking hour but I still have time to learn and dream!
Neil : Do it simple, Do it slow, Do it now !
Being in the marine
business I have known hundreds of people who had "the dream". Far too many of them "couldn't do it this year cause - Mom is sick - I have to work another 10yrs to get my pension - have to wait til' the kids
are finished university - add your own excuse here !
The vast majority of these people waited til' they no longer needed an excuse, they simply became physically incapable.
We did it for almost 20yrs and thought we had another 20 to go .... well ship happens and we have had to abandon a life we loved.
Don't wait til' it's too late.
