At this point...

It shouldn't be a surprise that I'm not blogging every day.  It's not happening and that's ok.

I've been thinking about that "greatness" thing again.  I don't even think it's greatness, I think it's passion.  I feel like I'm not necessarily passionate about anything any more, and it's making me sad.

One of my friends records about 3 different podcasts monthly.  Two of my friends are teaming up to start a small publishing venture on the side.  Another friend is blogging about traveling.  They're all passionate about something, and I feel like my passion has left me.

I've been enthusiastic about a number of things over the years, most notably television.  But now?  I find myself constantly behind on every show.  I'm probably watching too much, but then we're allegedly in a "Golden Age of Television"  Even so, I find it becoming a chore.  I could delete my whole DVR and I wonder if I would actually mind?

This is not to say that I'm depressed.  If i were, I think I'd be watching more tv, not less.  But I still can't help that feel that something is off.  Something is missing.

How does one go about recapturing a passion?

I keep trying to come up with ideas.  Something to do.  Something interesting and sustainable.

Maybe I watch a show I've never seen before and podcast about it from the beginning. Or a show I love, and point out the things I love...
Maybe I try writing again.  I've always loved screenplays and mysteries.
Maybe I think of a third thing, because of the rule of three!

I don't think anyone reads this.  Mostly because I haven't told anyone I'm writing this.  But if you're reading and you have any thoughts, let me know.
