- I realized I no longer enjoyed, nor believed in the story I was in, so decided to write my own.
- I left my job, and walked away from a promise of a generous lifetime pension in exchange for my freedom.
- I surrendered my possessions to rid myself of distractions.
- I embarked on a creative journey.
Because I share Dianne Ackerman’s sentiment that: “The great affair, the love affair with life, is to live it as variously as possible, to groom one’s curiosity like a high-spirited thoroughbred, climb aboard, and gallop.”
And William Blake’s: “He who desires but acts not breeds pestilence.”
Unencumbered, with a glimpse of immaculate sand awaiting my footprints, I now begin my blissful walk on the edge of uncertainty doing exactly what I feel I was meant to do all my life: to write.
I walk with gratitude for those that have brought me to this point, and to you, patrons, who I now invite to journey with me.
