How important to you is living each day with a sense of personal purpose? If you’re anything like me, it’s your life-source. Without personal purpose, life loses its colour. This includes the “career” part, which typically consumes a large number of hours each day.
Last week, after nine fun-filled years, I moved on from Kineo and my role as Head of Client Services. This was completely my choice, the result of much soul-searching and realisation that I needed a new challenge, a new adventure to get stuck into.
Writing, performing and recording music has always been a big part of who I am. Back in 2004 I was fortunate enough to be runner-up in a BBC songwriting competition, resulting in interest from a record label and opportunity to perform a showcase.
This in turn led to a predicament: to work the London circuit as a young hopeful artist or start a family and get a ‘safer job’. I chose the latter (no regrets!) but have always hoped, one day, that I can return and find success as a song-writer.
I have fond memories of Dungeness, spending time there as a youngster beach fishing with my dad. It’s a quirky place – a bit like Marmite – you either love it or you hate it.
I recently went back there for old times’ sake, traveling on the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway. Here’s a video I shot along the way.
