It is late at night- too late- and I am weary from a solid stretch of too much work and not enough rest. It feels too familiar.
When I am this tired, I tend to ruminate on my purpose in the world. Recently, I have come to believe that my purpose in my professional life is to share the gift of light with anyone in the darkness- anyone who doesn’t know the gift or who cannot afford an expensive lighting consultant (like me).
But how do I accomplish this lofty goal? That is where my mind wanders as I sit on another job site, far from my family and hours from bedtime despite midnight being only minutes away.
I have ideas, of course. This blog is one of them- I’ll share my thoughts on lighting here and make them available to anyone and everyone. Need to know how to place downlights? Check. Looking for advice on lighting a kitchen? Check.
I am also trying my hand at writing articles, and I have a good portion of a book written that needs a publisher. I teach seminars and continuing education classes whenever I can, which is not particularly often right now.
I daydream about filming a television show where I help people improve the lighting in their homes. All I need to make that happen is…money and time, of course.
So what is the point of this blog post? Most of the time, I am dishing out advice. This time, I am asking for it.
I need help. How can I live out my purpose? How can I share the gift of light with you? How can I share the gift of light with others? If you have any ideas, I’d love to hear them.
