What jobs are out there that will:
Give a comfortable living
A quiet country life
Plenty of time for writing music and gardening
Time for tea in the afternoon
er ...... thats my life actually.Except the comfortable living part. I make my living solely from music(If you can call it a living).Bits of teaching,writing,producing CD's,small publishing deal in Japan, gigging,occasional sessions for some local TV writers.
I have spent the last 6 out of 8 winters in Brasil or Costa Rica.Apart from the cost of the flight,it costs the same to live there as it does in the dark cold power-hungry British Winter.Sometimes accomadation is a hammock tied to a tree on a beach,but for me that is the best hotel you could ever stay in.
If you can handle the total lack of security,more or less penury,and never being sure what you are doing from 1 day to the next,....I recomend it.
ps my wife does the gardening,I smell the flowers and eat the potatoes.....
