    Marian, I am certain that there are many in your (and mine) age group that have had similar regrets, although not the success from walking away from the "graphic design business" as you have. BTW, you walked away from the "business" of graphic design, but it seems to me that you are still a designer - and a damned good one at that. I have attempted to walk away a few times but seem to come back to it, always a little more enlightened, a bit more enthused. As the field of graphic design develops I feel it serves as a platform for ones own professional evolution. To start of as a graphic designer is much like starting off as a lawyer - you don't have to stick to lawyering your whole life. Your early training and experience can serve to make you a good business advisor, an entrepreneur, an activist, a community leader, and so on. Or you can stick to lawyering and designing - if that's where your passion lies, or that's the limit of your ability. The key is to keep growing by adding complementary knowledge and new experiences constantly.
