My dad, Merv, is a humble man, he has worked hard since the age of 13 when he left school and is currently still fighting off retirement as a plasterer. He is a voracious reader but was not really happy that I told him I was leaving a full time job to concentrate on my writing for a while [He has a valid point says my negative bank balance and uninspired dinner options]. I was a bit put out by his opposition but I understood where he was coming from. I just thought that I placed more value in being artistic and he didn't.
