They say when you do what you love you'll never work a day in your life.

I say when you do what you really, really love you'll work days, nights, weekends, on your commute, in the shower, while you're on the treadmill and sometimes even in your sleep.

Sorry I haven't updated lately. For me it goes: kids, work, blog. For the past eight weeks I've been pretty wrapped up with the first two.

Just to bring in another perspective, when I made my passion my work (that is, literature), I found I stopped loving it as much. I like my job in advertising, but I like just liking it. Liking allows me distance, perspective, the cool strategic eye I need to bend the masses to my will.

Miss your posts but your priorities are right :)

Skarambis, when I was a kid I saw this janitor who was a poet because being a janitor left his mind free to be open to poetry. I always loved that.
Thanks, Layla!

Wow, interesting post and great comments. A great angle on the whole thing.
Here's a story I think you might get something out of. It’s of Danny and how he had a job where he made good money but just wasn’t happy. He quit to follow his dream to play music full-time and now couldn’t be happier.
I hope you find it as inspirational as I do. Check out his video at the link below and if you like it give him your vote.
