What is the most ridiculous number?

Answer: your age. Seriously, how many decisions do you make with that number echoing inside your head? Too old to take up an instrument? Or study? Or have a change of career? Too young to marry? Or settle down?

Once you hit 18 it’s time to throw that number away. Once you hit 18 you’re a grown up and your life is your own.

Change career. Move. Study medicine. Or archaeology. Write a book. Paint. Travel. Take up violin. Fall in love. Learn to ski/tango/meditate/fly/sing.

Do whatever you passionately want to do. Forget your age. It’s just a very silly number. A ridiculous number. An excuse.

There are no limits to who you can be unless you make it so.

The wildest place I’ve been so far…

My choice for wildest blog this week isn’t wild in the clashy colour way of my website (which I must try and rectify).  It shows restraint; there’s no chaos, or feeling that it might lose control, either verbally or visually.

And yet it is wild. It lifted me out of my body temporarily; time definitely slipped. I was engrossed with the facts (although a little dismayed at the mother’s day one).  But most of all I was captured by an artist’s stunning work. Which is wildly restrained.

The man is a genius.
