Reader suggestion for blog topic: food or photography. or distant friends in boise idaho :)

[not so] anonymous reader suggestion:  food or photography. or distant friends in boise idaho :)

I love food.  I love to cook food.  I love to eat food (and I have the physique to prove it).  But, I have another blog where I discuss food and recipes.  I'll give you a hint, it's linked in the left sidebar.

I love photography; but, I have to admit I haven't been doing much with it the last few months. I don't know, I just haven't felt very creative of late.

I love my distant friend in Boise, Idaho (even if he does live in [gasp] Idaho).  I love it that he calls me periodically just to see how I am doing.

But, I have to admit - I've been struggling with this blog topic suggestion.  No offense [distant friend in Boise] but it's just too enigmatic - which is saying a lot from someone who is, himself, and enigma.

So, I'm going to read between the lines - I think what [distant friend in Boise] is trying to tell me is that I need to blog about things that I am passionate about.

Now that's going to take some work because ... well be brutally honest, my passion has fizzled - overshadowed by apathy.  But, deep down inside me is still a spark of passion.  I need to find that spark and nurture it, fan it to make it grow into a fire swelling inside of me.

... um

Does anybody know how I can make this happen?

I conjure up my gay red spirit.

(Don't know why but I always visualize my gay spirit as red)

Have to pick a shirt to wear, the first shirt that catches my fancy is the one I wear.

Plan to go out to eat...I think of something special I haven't had in a long time like empanadas or sango de camaron and that's where I go.

My gay red spirit is freer, less inhibited and much more whimsical than I am.

It likes trying new things and doing things just for fun and savoring the moment.

It feels much more than thinks and feels with all five senses.

Sometimes I just need to enjoy being.

I love what Philip has written here.

Just start doing something different, more spontaneous and daring. One moment at a time, and hopefully the passion returns.
