Everyone’s got something inside them ticking away, something knocking on the back of the brain, tugging at their subconscious for attention. Everybody’s got something they want to do, learn, try or change. Everybody’s go an itch. An itch that won’t go away until it gets scratched.
For some people, that itch might be that round-the-world trip they never did in between finishing high school and starting Uni. For others, it’s a new career path, a sea or tree-change, or maybe picking up that guitar that’s played host to more spiders in the last ten years than it has played songs.
For me, well, let’s just say I’d need another set of arms, hands and fingers to scratch all the itches that wrestle for my attention. Currently though, my itchiest itch is to write and direct a short film. No, hang on, it’s to stop working for the man and start my own ad agency. No, it’s to get fitter and healthier. No, it’s to cook more amazing meals. No it’s to bike around Tasmania. No, it’s to restore an old Holden or Valiant. No it’s to…
Anyway, whatever your itch is, I encourage you to make some time to give it a good old scratch.
