An Idea

Ever had one of those moments - where a simple idea or comment sticks in your head as a perfect truth?  A thought you keep returning to because it just seems right?

Here we are at the Oceanfront having dinner with friends.  This photo was taken a year before we set our new plan in motion.

Denise and I were talking a few months ago about our future as we get older.  Currently, we each own a home, each have a successful career, and also each support side business ventures.  Our thought, that little acorn of an idea, was to move from our corporate jobs, divest of the majority of our material things and spend our later years pursuing those side ventures we really love.

For Denise, those ventures support healthy living: Feng Shui, anti-aging products, health supplements and homeopathy.  For me, it's art - mostly photography.  We each have mentors- successful folks in these areas that have made a good living in these areas.  So we know it's possible.  

As we continued to talk, the idea began to take the form of a realistic set of goals.  We want to travel while still young enough to really enjoy it.  We want to share our passions with other people through social media, workshops, and perhaps even books some day.  

So, I'm starting this blog to record our journey.  I'll try to post at least once a week as we put more meat on the bone of this animal, and start activities in support of this new dream.
