It is the Adventurers Who Accomplish Great Things, 12/05/05

My grandfather used to say, "You have to know when a job is done. You have to know when you're finished."

"Does the potential in other markets exceed the potential of pushing further with what I'm doing now?"

"Will a change in markets help me to learn and invent new methodologies that will carry me beyond the ever-changing cycles?"

One of my favorite paintings is subtitled, "It is the Adventurers Who Accomplish Great Things," and it shows a very young boy setting off an adventure with his whimsical friends -
