One of my friends said the other day, “I want to do something exciting with the rest of my existence on this planet.” He is in his early sixties and is lusting for a change.

Courtroom to Darkroom
Richard Turner Smiling Elephant SealI’m sharing with you an interview by Carl Landau of Pickleball Media, following up on the AARP documentary, about my “courtroom to darkroom” decision, where I exited a successful law practice and became a nature photographer and poet! I think you’ll like the interview. It’s gone out to a national, if not worldwide, audience.
Carl is an example of change as well, starting a media empire including this podcast, I Used to be Somebody!, after being in the magazine business for years.
Episode #4 Richard Turner: Big Time Trial Attorney Turns Zen PhotographerIf this story resonates with you, please don’t feel alone in this. Many people, especially the boomers, are interested in career change in mid life or just plain change, doing something different, interesting, fascinating, provocative. Life is short. It’s full of miracles and adventure. Don’t let it pass you by.
This is one of those “if I can do it, so can you” moments. Check out the Pickleball interview here.
If you’d prefer to read a little about it, you can do that on Carl’s blog about the interview here.
Many thanks and many blessings,
