    As much as I’d totally like to meet you and see you make that Blackberry comment to girls out here I’d also vote for you not going so far away from the ACN. Short trips to the LA/Hollywood area, okay, but otherwise you’re right where you should be.

    Hmm. Family IS important. But following your dreams is too. Isn’t there a way you can do both? And I empathize with your plight. Do I really want to devote myself to writing about food and other inanities when there is so much ‘real’ work to be done out there? I can’t help but feel some sort of social responsibility.

    As long as you are writing, and learning, I think then you are ok. Isn’t that what life is about?

    And being such a part of the ACN’s life must be really rewarding. (Is she blonde?) She is only going to be young once, and watching a child grow up is such an exciting thing. I wish I had been around more when my sister’s kids were young. I think I’ll go visit my nephews this weekend.

    james: I think you are right, man.

    eve: Very good points. I feel like I am doing both right now — just the dreams are a bit different, you know? I have outgrown some of the originals. I’m still writing. (And I wear shorts as often as humanly possible — considering I am in Canada and not a professional basketball player.)

    You’re a good man, Pete. If there’s any justice in this world, you will be able to have it all ((hugs))

    thanks for the shout-out Pete :) All I can say is when it’s your time – things will fall into place. Dreams are placed with you for a reason – and there are times when you have to rearrange them a bit to make room for the really important things life brings you – family being #1. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be a moment down the road when some sort of opportunity opens up, or you feel the need inside to pursue something new – and suddenly you find yourself in an entirely new place (whether literally or just in the realm of ideas) and you’re living the dream. May not be what you imagined, but it will be something new :) Until then – keep living and loving the life you’re in – you seem to do this really well :)

    Dreams have to adapt and change… They never end up exactly the way you wanted them, and they shouldn’t.

    Sounds like you’ve got your priorities straight ;)

  8. Peter says:

    steph: Thanks! And the secret of your sweetness is safe with me.

    megan: Good points and such good advice. I think that I sometimes cling to dreams/plans a bit too stubbornly. The idea of new dreams and future adventures is an exciting one though. (Something you well know.)

    stormin’: Very true, man.

    airam: Thanks! This crazy blog thing seems to help with the keeping track of the important things.
