Day 42 TED Inspires

I made it to Day 42. There's an irony there. You would expect there to be some big revelation or epiphany but there wasn't. Work was the normal monotony that it always is. I switched from listening to audiobooks to listening to TED Talks. There are some very interesting talks.

This is one really struck home for me.



Over the years I have had several dreams that I didn't pursue for any number of reasons. I've put off dreams and desires for so long that I'm not sure I can get really get passionate about anything anymore. After a few TED Talks I was ready to start exploring again.

I went to Stamp Camp with a friend. It was the usual casual fun. My cards, of course, look nothing like they were intended to, but I didn't care. I really do have my own drummer and he does his own thing.

On the way home we got to talking. I both love and hate talking to her. She easy to talk to. Too easy. And I end up spilling more than I mean too. By the end of the conversation I remembered the very real reasons that don't pursue my passions. Maybe one day it will sort itself out, as it's not something I can sort out on my own. Not without making some major changes that I'm not comfortable making.

Some days life sucks.
