Toby Barraud, Kiwi film maker living in New York, interviewed in "Metro" May 2006.
I asked him in a follow-up email if he ever saw himself coming back to New Zealand and - before predictable talk about how if he had children he would want to raise them here - he wrote that his time in New York had been mostly hard work, struggling to survive and get ahead.
"But of course, now that everything is in place I think about changing it all again by moving somewhere else. I guess that's the nature of attainment - it's not until you get to the top of the ladder that you wonder if it's propped against the right wall."
Not sure where this cartoon comes from - will acknowledge if I can find out - but it's making the same point.
