Walking with Aaron in the mornings is a great way to start the day. I like getting up and out and hiking in the Hollywood Hills each day. Today I started part 2 of my new morning routine. Going to the bourgeois pig (an Internet cafe) with Aaron with the idea of getting some work done.

It’s been so long since I got any work done, that I don’t even know how to get started. Long ago I traded in being productive, for being hedonistic. Traded in my Frankin Planner for a day bed and started some serious work on my tan. . . which. . . if I do say so myself. . . looks marvelous.

I have a lot of time on my hands and while I love doing nothing more than most, I feel like the time might be right to set some goals and make some things happen.

Now the real question, what to do. . . what to do.

I thought I wanted to make a DVD to sell on the street. Half performance footage, half teaching simple beginner tricks. When you have an idea that never gets moved on, it demonstrates a lack of passion, motivation and desire. So, I’ve officially scrapped that idea and now the task is to figure out what video project I would like to do.

I have time, talent and equipment. . . so what’s holding me up!? I used to have many dreams and delusions in the past. Things to do and people to see. Gigs to book and places to go.

What’s holding me up? Apathy, lack of direction, pot? I don’t know, but I’m interesting in finding out what will make me tick in this part of my life.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
