If you see a bandwagon it’s too late. This is key.
I’ve always done exactly as I wanted to do – no bandwagon here. It made no difference whether it was wise or safe or even popular. I make no claim as to how prudent some of those decisions were. What I can tell you is that more was learned from the mistakes than from the successes. In fact, I’ve made so many mistakes I should be one of the wisest humans on the planet. I really wish it worked that way.
I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. When you have so many interests sometimes you just don’t know where to begin. I’ve been that way my entire life. Just the other day I was passing an aloe plant and the bloom was so spectacular I had to stop to look closely and take a photo. My friend made a quiet statement about me being interested in everything. It’s true …. with the exception of math.
I write books. I work at a zoo. I’m passionate about animals. I adore Jack Russell Terriers. I teach stained glass. I garden. I hike. I mosaic. Once in awhile I stop and rest if for no other reason than the shock value it gives to those who know me best.
