Two years after giving up the day-job, which was teaching English, I find myself still doing the day-job and teaching English. Feels a bit like Hotel California, I’ve checked out but I haven’t left.
Speaking to the Count today and when I asked his advice on the whole topic of work, income and creativity, he did his usual thing of bouncing my question back to me.
And of course he’s right, I know the answer. I know. exactly what to do. But I’ll be doing it without any support or safety net, knowing that only absolute commitment can even get me halfway to where I want to be, and anything beyond that is not guaranteed.
But as Neff often says in situations like this, ‘C’Mon!’
