More soul food

Stephanie asked me yesterday what exactly made me happy, what my passions were. I guess I never stopped to take inventory.

My first passion is her, of course. Everything is better when she's around. It's a pretty powerful thing when someone just being around makes things better.

Volleyball is a passion. If I could coach for a living I'd do it. College would of course be a "real" job, but high school pays a couple of grand at most. I absolutely adore my kids right now. Nine amazing, talented, beautiful kids capable of extraordinary things. It's so cool to be a part of that.

Programming and running Web sites is fun. I really get off on the new technology too.

I love photography, though I don't do it as much as I used to. Video is closely connected to that and great fun as well. I've started to realize this as I write my screenplay.

I want to do all of this stuff, right now. Steph and I have so many amazing talents, yet we don't have the execution plan to figure out a way they can financially support us. That's so frustrating. I'm tired of working for the man, because the man doesn't really give a fuck about what I need, nor should the man be expected to. Only I can do the things to feed my soul. The challenge is being able to eat and buy the things that let me enjoy myself.
