You may wonder what I’m up to now that I have “retired” from the pressures of a fast paced industry which was making little money. Well, wonder no more as I can assure you that I am delighted to be out of the rat race.
I admit that it is a bit premature for some as I am only 56 years old and have no money income what'so'ever. However, if you have been following my blog, you may realise that I consider my wealth is my good health and also my love of the outdoors.
I’m not really one for materialistic possessions simply because I believe my happiness stems from my freedom. Possessions tend to bog that down. Example, if I had an expensive car, I would only worry about leaving it parked somewhere as I went boating for a few days. I doubt if many would be interested in stealing my 10 year old Toyota so I have little worries abandoning it for a week or so.
I do have a few savings that will keep me going for a while in my simplistic lifestyle, but I also realise from my pervious boating adventures to the wilderness of Scotland, that I must fish for the mackerel or collect the shellfish to fill my belly on the lean days. It is all part of the challenge that I enjoy so much.
So at the moment I’m learning to “fish” to hopefully supplement my savings. Im doing this by setting up my own web site where I hope to start fulfilling a life long dream of being a self sufficient artist and photographer. Its early days yet to know if I will succeed, but a caterpillar has to turn into a cocoon before it can become the butterfly. I think of myself as the cocoon in the metabolic transformation to fulfil my dreams. I am also quite positive about my self survival.
Its still very much under construction, but you can see my web site at the following link...
