Passion Party #491 - Ship It

When I started writing the Passion Party blog there was just one simple theme:
"Helping other people get inspired".
It was a short message with a long story.
How can I inspire others when
I feel angry, alienated and out of control?
I wanted to be honest
and the honest truth was that
I was angry at all the things I had no control over.
It was a time for letting go
for reconnecting with meditation and nature
reading inspiring books by others
and creating a quiet time to write,
to journal and document what, it turns out,
is a life-long journey filled with creativity and passion.
Now it is time to release The Pursuit Of Passion to the world.
Unlike the bitter poet in "Vicky Christina Barcelona" that spends his life writing poetry
and then will not publish it or read it to anyone because he hates mankind,
my purpose was - and is - to inspire others.
And there is fear in putting my creation out into the world.
Is it good enough?
Am I worthy? 
Is it a waste of time? And money?
The answer is:
Create the best you can do
and then release it.  Give it birth.  Publish.  Ship it.
My old friend Mark Berndt once said,
"You can't put out your second album
until the first album has been released".
Now that I have put out 7 albums, I know what he is saying, and the same holds true in writing a book.
Don't wait.
What are you waiting for?
And so I hope you can join me, in spirit or in person,
at my Book Release Party for  The Pursuit Of Passion
at 5:30 PM PST tonight
at Rush Street, Culver City, CA 90232
