Family trumps all

For reasons of family – not extended but close and not because they don’t like what I do but simply because what I do isn’t the living they need to be happy – I cannot continue to post either words or photos.

The job I want to do will preclude me from such luxuries, and my (close) family needs my salary more than I have a right to my art.  

I hope those of you who have followed me and placed an interest in what I do and have grown to have faith in my ideas will understand why I have to take this decision.  It shall be hard and possibly health-hurting for me if I do not take care, but I cannot continue to work without remuneration.

Thanks again.  It was getting good, right?  But this really is the end of my artistic adventures.

  1. I’m genuinely sorry to read this, Mils, but you have to make the decision that you feel you must. I have enjoyed reading your work as much of it has resonated quite strongly with me. I wish you all the best, my friend. I hope you continue writing and taking photos, even if we in blog land don’t necessarily get to see it. Take care, Mils. It’s been grand. 🙂

    1. Thank you for your kind words but it hasn’t been grand. It would have been grand if I could’ve fed my family instead of living off my wife. To work for free is the worst kind of enslavement.
