Me too. I'm starting from scratch with nothing more than the clothes in my duffle bag. After decades of working construction, I'm choosing a new path. My kids are grown, the wife is gone, and the dogs dead. Time for something different, and unexpected. I'm gonna make a new career out of writing. I wrote one book already, and a publisher read it and sent me a contract. If this pans out, I plan to continue for as many years as I can. Try it, or do something that you always wanted to but were too afraid of the outcome. You'll never know what lies ahead if you don't keep your head up.
Paint yourself a new picture, one stroke at a time.
