A short post to celebrate the fact that my friend and former colleague, Phyllis, successfully raised the money she needed to create her own TV show through Pozible. (If you decided to support her after reading this post, a big THANK YOU on her behalf.)

Through the miracle of Star-Trek-type technology, we spoke to her yesterday at home on the other side of the world. At one point during the conversation, she and her husband Kym blamed some of their inspiration on our project. I’d just like to pass the buck on this one and pin the whole thing on Liz and Ringo.

We met Liz and Ringo through our daughter, who was a good friend of their son. We got on well. We even went to each others houses a couple of times. But only a few weeks after we met them, they said: “We’re moving to Spain next month”.

They packed up their life and were gone.

What this showed us was that there are two paths. You can either dream about what you want to do, or you can just do it. Only one of these paths ends in regret.
