However, for someone like me – following my passion as a golem builder has not been very successful from a financial point of view. Adding up all the books, courses etc. that I have paid for over the years, well it comes to several thousand dollars of sunk costs that I had pretty much written off.
Short of selling my talents as a golem builder to create life-sized Claymation style love dolls, I had pretty much written off my career as a golem builder before it had even started. The only reason this blog carried on for the past year or so is that updating the blog had become a habit – and habits can be hard to break.
Anyway, imagine my surprise when a few months ago I was head-hunted by someone very famous in the music industry (even I had heard of them) representing a charity that promotes the study of Kabbalah in society. After several interviews, presenting some lectures and interactive workshop demonstrations – the society has finally agreed to hire me as golem builder in residence.
So from today onwards for the next three years I have been commissioned to create a golem! This comes as a great relief as the “life-sized Claymation girlfriend experience” business was very niche and to be honest rather messy.
