You know the saying “Don’t give up your day job”?
This was me for many years, too concerned about the future to give away my day job. And now I have a new day job, and a night job, and a weekend job, and a holiday job. That’s O.K. because this was the job I was always doing when I was doing that other day job.
And yes, that is my Amuse the Wind in association with Deerstalker pictures; I’m an executive producer. What that really means is that my film maker son, Elliot, and his Director of Photography, Goldie, get a cash import from me every time they publish on YouTube. Almost as being glamorous as an artist, wouldn’t you say?
So now that my time is more flexible, I travel more to Europe and anywhere else that takes my fancy. Like Venice, to collect some more gloriously delicious Venetian glass beads. I’ll try to choose a variety of colours but don’t be surprised if, when I get them home, they are my favourite dream colours.
Just a few days in Venice and then I’m flitting to Portugal. I haven’t been here before so that will be a different language, a different landscape, and a brand new experience.
I’d love you to follow me on my travels. Perhaps get some LETTERS FROM MY SUITCASE, MAIL FROM EXOTIC PLACES. Can hardly wait for this. Whoo Hoo!
