Well, I did it. I just closed the door on the mad world of advertising, free of the shackles of the day-to-day craziness, free to live my dreams. And standing here, looking at the road before me, I have only one question: now what??
What am I supposed to do when I wake up, if not check my blackberry for notes from China and the UK? Why do I wake up at 5:45 ready to go, when I have nowhere to be all day? Where is the adrenaline rush, that smug sense of purpose to reinforce my self worth?
I feel free, but free like in Tom Petty’s “Free Falling.” It’s a little scary. What in the world do I do now?
I write. I always have. I also eat. And cook. And I still want to think creatively and spend each day exploring fresh new ways to express my ideas. It might be a thought, or a discovery, or a recipe I have invented or repurposed. And I will use this space to share my musings with any like minded souls who may stop by.
So please drop me a line, say hello and let me know what you think. I welcome the company, and lord knows I can use the advice!
