Have you ever had those times in your life when you talked about doing something but for one excuse or another you never went ahead and did it?

Did you ever play the mental game; what would I do if I won the lottery? And matched it to the dreams you'd like to pursue, but said, alas I'm afeared to step out of the familiarity of now.

When was the last time you said; later, or I'll do it tomorrow or next week, or even next year?

Five years ago I said I was going to do something. I have not done one solitary thing to move in the direction of that goal, except to take a few vacations to my shangri-la. Xanadu was/is visited mostly at night in my pre-sleep dreams.

New horizons.

I resigned from my place of employment today!
