Hmmm

Sometimes when you least expect it you really have to stop and think. I say this because a vast majority of time we are wandering through life just making things work and not paying attention to what we are doing.

So recently I have been thinking about "What I want to be when I grow up?" Most people would assume that I am grown up - they would be wrong - my son and I get along perfectly because I stopped growing up somewhere around 18ish and well the average 18 year old is about the same maturity level as my 3 year old.

So my sudden questioning of possible career change started a few weeks ago when my wife suggested I started reading Zen and the Art of Making a Living. There are quotes from Joseph Campbell, Vincent van Gogh, James Joyce, D.T Suzuki, Anais Nin, William Blake and tons more. It is an amazing book . I am going to start trying to add a weekly comment about the book, and a quote that struck a cord with me.

On a side note: I get to go see Michael Moore tomorrow at UVSC - VIP section no less - have to dress like a young republican and I am going with at least two republicans but I respect their opinions so this should be interesting. I will try and snag some pixs and drop a comment afterwards.

Hi. Great site. Has anyone seen this site yet? - flies fishing. I was amazed by the pics in the pdf they're giving away, so I'm looking for someone who knows if this guy is legit, before I buy this book.

Hi. Great site you've got here! This may interest some people. I was looking for fly fishing pics and stumbled accross this site - fly tying. Quite impressive pics of trout, but not really the scenery I was looking for. Anyone know where I can find some more actual fly fishing, open country type images?
