During my travels, I learnt that Steven too had separated from his wife. Two months before I was due to come home, while on a Skype chat, we acknowledged that we had feelings for each other that ran deeper than friendship. Just like the shepherd boy in the Alchemist, I had taken the brave step of going in search of my destiny—and I knew then that I was coming home to find my treasure. Steven was waiting for me at the airport when I returned. We had known each other for so long, that we just moved in together. It seemed like the most natural thing in the world to both of us.
You may not agree with all of the ideas expressed here, but art is meant to be thought provoking and I hope you will grant me that.

Exploring and discovering my creative side has been one of the missing pieces in the puzzle of my destiny.
Susan Cain said “the task of the first half of life is to put yourself out there, and the task of the second half is to make sense of where you've been”.
Today, I hope I have inspired you to start thinking about taking a risk, to put yourself out there and then to make sense of it.
