I must admit, I have let my writing suffer a little in the pursuit (and worry) of nasty things like money. Although a day job is a necessity right now, I have also let my writing jobs fall slightly by the wayside. It made me wonder why. I think I was beginning to lose heart in my decision to do more freelance writing and less paid work. But then a wonderful thing happened. I received a copy of the latest Voi Tutti and saw two pieces I wrote AND my new page in The Weekly Review last week and people noticed it. I know that’s incredibly vain, but hey, it’s validation you are on the right track.
I decided to take a little thinking time out and took a trip to Lorne. Standing at the base of Erskine Falls having my photo taken by J, I realised this is what I want, and need, to do. Travel, experience, take photos, report back, learn about cultures, places and people. So stay tuned for an invigorated Airloom. I’m back on board!
