A beautiful story on following your passion and how you can start anything new at any age!
"I used to be obsessed with cooking. It was all I thought about. I did cooking shows on the BBC. I wrote 27 cookbooks. I wrote a whole cookbook just about garlic.
Then one night, I was editing the proofs for my 27th cookbook, when I picked up a marker and drew a mermaid on a piece of scrap paper. I looked at that mermaid, she looked at me, and I never thought about cooking again.
Ever since that moment, I've thought about nothing but art. I was sixty years old when I made the switch. I'm not sure what caused it. It was either menopause, a psychotic break, or a muse bit me on the bum!"
