New Directions

I've decided to go a new direction in my life. I'm going to reach for the big dreams with all the energy I can find within myself but I will no longer try to do everything myself.

I'm giving up on fine art and museum exhibits. I will use past works in both areas to tell stories in many ways.

I've decided to give up on trying to have a personal relationship with a woman until I start making a steady income.

My weak business skills must become stronger and I am going to work towards learning as much as I can in the coming months.

Rose Pearl will be my last fine art painting. I will finish my graphic novel this month.

I am writing a first draft of a feature length script. I will have that first draft finished next month.

Finally I will push myself as hard as I can to finish a first draft of my novel Grandfather Green Tie and the Invisible Picnic. I took a wrong turn in this novel and it is taking some time to undo the damage my own ego did to this book.

Go for it Robert. I think sometimes we need to consolidate our many talents and concentrate them into the one that has become most important to us.

Thanks Joan and horse & moon

I've decided to focus on storytelling as a force for world unity in movies and books.

I've went down the wrong path in my short movie 'Two Jews and a Pagan'.

I'll be writing about that in my next post.

Sounds like you have strong focus and intention Robert, which will help you to achieve your goals. I believe your public declaration will help solidify and make real those dreams! I wish you a smooth and steady journey along the way...

Thanks Karin

I'm beginning to let go of some of my negative emotions and I hope that will lead me down the right path.
