Doodle 23 - Fish
I always wanted to be a celebrated artist, in demand, admired by all, and so on, but at some point I thought it would be best to pursue art as a passionate side-bar instead. I likely would never have taken a job in the Marine Corps or Air Force if I had dedicated myself to illustration and in that respect I would have missed a great many benefits I now enjoy. I may never have gotten a college education or been just a few credits from my Masters. All in all I can't help but recognize the many good things that have come from the choices I've made, but somewhere in the back of my skull is the never dying question, could I have made this my living...I think yes! I probably still could, but that would require a great shift in the structure of my life at present. On that note, I have an incredible idea for a science fiction novel centered around a device that creates ghosts...but not like you think, way different. More on that later.
