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.
