Break time - stepping back, re strategizing ... what's going to be my next move? No ideas right now. Lake Shore came to an end after a successful development period (2.7 million hits), but it never landed a home with a Canadian broadcaster. Why? Various reasons, but mainly because it was too risky, too hot, too sexy. I guess Canada doesn't want to go where our neighbours swim, the obnoxious sexy hot waters. Oh well, still a proud producer. Hate it or love it, it is what it is. I accomplished more than I hoped to achieve, I dived into this project knowing it was a gamble so as the french say, c'est la vie...
Alors, now I'm in Jamaica for a variety of reasons, but the main one is to re group and clear some of the clutter that has piled up on my mind & Jamaica is by far the most inspiring, peaceful and loving place to be in when one needs to think with a clear head. It had been a while I needed to write a new blog and today I walked into the beach bar with my lab top, sat on a bench on the beach and it all just came to me... so here I am sharing it with you.
I'm working on a project right now remotely, but nothing too loaded. Working remotely from any location is one of my favourite things to do now. I almost never want to work from headquarters anymore, but I know I will miss the routine of structured work environment (not that I ever really did that, I've mainly been a freelancer). Aside from my current project, www.smallbizontv.com, I plan on travelling to south of france, Italy, asia and middle east. All as a part of my re grouping experiment and finding my new focus.
Exploring is my newest thing now, well...I'm generally an adventurious person but now more than ever. So I share a few photos of my new discoveries in Jamaica. You can also visit my photo journal of my previous Jamaica trips here.
Depending on where I am, I say I adapt pretty well. I throw a fist back home if everything is not at my disposal and here in Jamaica, at times I've had to dig the water out of the well, boil it, cool it and drink it. I kinda' like living different life styles. What I admire about myself is the fact that I was born in the city, raised in a privilege environment but I love country/farm life. I wonder how I can intertwine both worlds (city/country) in my life...
