    I have keys in my pocket and a weeks worth of commissions lined up. A very nice arrangement with a shop in a prime location and will soon collect my work tools from storage.

    End of thread. Almost. Only to add that very shortly I will be working with a partner here taking bookings for very affordable art and photography holidays. I'll also be unofficially taking paying guests in my new house in La Chana from September (living in Albycin for just two months).

    And, things are looking very promising for a very exciting photography project that will involve a lot of travel. It's been a long time coming but, finally looking like it's going to happen.

    If I could ask for this thread to be archived just in case I don't manage to save it to my HD before it disappears I would be very grateful. You never know, with added sketches, a little more interest and some clever editing by a good writer it might become a book. If that ever happens (and you never know) Urban could expect a very handsome server fund boost.


    It was fucking hard work but, extremely enjoyable for all kinds of reasons. I have met so many good people that would have passed me by in any other circumstances.

    Thanks for all the encouraging posts and feedback here. It helped a lot in the toughest times.


    End of thread.

    sounds like the pressure is off somewhat for july/aug..what a relief for you:)
    well done for sticking with it!

    you wont have to sell nearly as much with the greatly reduced living expenses...why dont you check out the travellers community "benicifico" in that small town in the mountains near granada as a little side trip, doesnt cost much to bus it out there, i was going to go there once but ended up having to go eleswhere to meet someone..sadly.
    forgot the name of the town now but all the "crusty" expats will know the place.
    from what ive heard they arent all alkies out there by any means, met some people staying there who definately werent.it might be a good place to take it easy and get a break from having to sell x-amount.


    ps...edited to say...great you have a place lined up for sept as well!

    Have you considered a blog? I'm not sure I'm ready to have to live with only my own boring life of answering tech questions, writing a bit of code, running concerts and cocktail parties for rich folk, and playing with power tools in my copious free time. I need a bit of methodone to get by. :D

    Well done Stanley. I hope the thread can be archived. I have enjoyed each nail biting episode and wish you well with the next project. I am sure you will have a ready audience here for any further exploits you wish to report.

    I think it has potential. Lots of little sketches and an edited selection of words.

    Thanks again for the feedback and ideas here. As a footnote; I collect my PC and work tools next Wednesday so, I'll be back to photography and design for real income. But, I will continue painting and sketching here, and possibly elsewhere.

    Loads of people have left the city for the hot summer. I'm completing a painting for a good couple here who have given me loads of support. They leave on Sunday so, I'm painting a view of their appartment from Plaza Nueva. I haven't seen Sean the street poet from Norwich for a couple of days (he was talking about hitching to Iceland and I have absolutely no doubt that he will). An aussie friend has left for Germany and then Croatia. A really genuine guy who I hope to share a few more drinks and stuff with in the future. I haven't seen a couple of people recently who I would have liked to say goodbye to but, I'm sure they'll return at some time.

    Not to sure how to present this as a book proposal. There's an obvious way that may be a little to obvious. Plenty of time to think about it. If anyone here knows what to do...

    I haven't quite got the bollocks to read through the whole thing myself yet. There were some very, very, very low moments that I'm not ready to remember just yet. Makes the highs that much higher mind. One thing I know for sure is that I am a very different person in many ways today than I was just 4 months ago. I have learned loads and dropped many prejudices I didn't know I had. Hope I remember to leave them where they belong for the future.

    Taking my cameras out tomorrow. Really going to enjoy that in the knowledge that I can tire myself stupid and stumble home into a nice, familiar, safe bed.

    These people:

    http://www.thefridayproject.co.uk/

    specialise in turning web stuff into books. Just a thought...

    btw, if anything catastrophic should happen to the U75 server, I have the whole thread (up until a couple of days ago) saved on my PC.
