    I never talk to outside world too except coming to Kopitiam here. All of my work related communications are through email.

    I've found out that there are a lifestyle photographer and a digital illustrator in Australia also work like one.

    Thanks to internet.
    Do you ever talk to anyone during the day? :-) You easily can do the silent meditation some Christian monks do!

    Good point raised regarding quality of life. How many are truly "happy"? I don't think I can find a happiness in a rat race.
    A camera cannot teach you how to see.

    There is no one around during the day and there is always photography or photography related tasks to do.

    I do the silent meditation part when my head hits the pillow for an afternoon nap. Not many job allows you to do that.

    Just tell him you're too sick to get up and open the door.

    I don't have problem with having no one to talk to during the day.

    I only have problem with people having problem with people having on one to talk to during the day.
