I have lots of little dreams that I hope will grow and twist their way into meaningful endeavours. My relationships with my friends are big influence in my life and finding ways to spend time with them is a constant preoccupation. I like to be on the move, so lots of visits to my friends in near and far-away places will be in my future plans. My main project right now is a book of interviews that will include photography and other visual art. It’s about Canada’s aging demographic and how the lives of recent immigrant seniors shape our communities. The most important thing that keeps me happy and excited about life is having new experiences and learning from them. What I struggle with most has always been a tendency to be self-conscious and to put too much emphasis on success. So for now I’m trying keep in mind that life is a constant work-in-progress and that, at this stage, working hard is more important than being successful. And, of course, what is life without the universal stress over money? Well let’s just say a 9-5 job with lots of after-hours time spent on my book and other endeavours is going to be my road to get it done.
