Follow your bliss

"Follow your bliss". Joseph Campbell

This has been one of my favourite quotations for a very long time. My particular problem was that I didn't know what that was. At least not until I became passionate about photography about 3 years ago.

I finally heeded that advice. Today, I worked my last day as a Technical Writer to pursue my photography career. I'm about 90% excited beyond belief and 10% utterly terrified. But I suppose that's perfectly normal, and not a bad ratio.

And now, off to celebrate!

GOOD for you, Irene. YAY! This is certainly exciting and I am convinced you will do superbly! And now you and Mr T will be spending more time together :-)
