I haven't posted for a (ah em) while so I thought it may be a good time.  I notice a lot of things everyday,  The most painful thing to me, being an artist, is to notice a lack of passion in someone.  Passion is the true key to professional happiness and I would argue happiness period.  Don't doubt it.  Is it possible to be happy without passion?  I don't know.  But I think I know the answer ;)  More soon.
