Life is one very, very big canvas and it's scary - where do you start? You get to your teenage years and the painting is fast and full of mistakes but full of colour. You get to your 20s and you think it's taking shape, so you slow down a little. Then, before you know it, you're in your 40s and there's so much white canvas still left! Well, my canvas is still nowhere near finished - and never will be - but I'm happy with the way it's going.
