It’s Sunday … time for the Question of the Week.
I’ve been doing a lot of introspective thinking this week. Trying to figure out how my life got to the place it is and how to change it. Thinking about what I do for a living and what I would LIKE to do for a living, and that introspection is what prompted this week’s question.
Ned Gowan is the legal adviser for the Clan MacKenzie. But it was not always so. His adult life started out pretty normal. He studied Law at the University of Edinburgh and had an office with lace curtains and a nice, quiet life. But that wasn’t enough for our Ned. He closed his office and headed off to the Highlands looking for adventure. He decided that the direction his life had taken wasn’t where he wanted to be, so he changed direction.
So, that is my question this week. What is your DREAM life? If you could, right this minute, have the life, the spouse, the kids, the job, the car, the ….whatever, you’ve always wanted, what would that life look like?
Me, I’d be a wildly popular novelist living in a remodeled castle ruin in the Scottish Highlands with a couple of dogs and a 100% perfect internet connection.
What’s YOUR adventure? Is it being a stay at home mom, doing the PTA, Bakesale, Sports, Dance Lesson thing? Is it Roller Derby? Doctors Without Borders? What’s your DREAM life?
(now this isn’t to suggest that if you describe something that isn’t what you have right now that you’re not satisfied with what you have, I’m just asking about what you think the most adventurous life for YOU would be. If it’s what you have now, then I’m way jealous of you.)
