Mature artsy, former property maintenance guy, now changing direction.
I'm in skool now, far from the warm shores of home, going to TRU, Thompson Rivers University, in Kamloops, British Columbia Canada, attending the Class 1 Greenhorn Driver course there. I am keeping a Trucking School Diary on my 'social link,' above.
"Canuck CDL Journal: Balls to the Wall"
It's about grabbing hold of the wheel of life. Pushing yourself to the limit, making mistakes, learning from them, and ultimately (hopefully) landing on your feet running. It's an honest take on trying to live life by learning a new challenging career.

Glancing back at the breakwater while walking my three legged dog, I saw the mist blanketing the graveyard across the bay. I felt I was looking at it for the last time. It's a new year, and a new beginning.
Poised on the edge of tomorrow / Ready to leap into the abyss / Listless dreams and a lust for life
One last look back down / At friends lost to the valley mist / Different paths taken
Debt paid in full, blessed yet battleworn / Who knew it would be this challenging? / Defying the inertia of sleep
High on the bridge, shining like a beacon / A truck idles as if magically suspended over the sleeping town / One last miraculous demonstration to witness / The questioning passenger door propped open / Will anyone answer the call of life?
On the road now / The future bright for those who toil late and long in the night / Called to assist those who awaken in the dark of night / ~
Bonus video: Semi awakens kid sleeping on road. This describes life. Wake up!
