Something you love

Today I took the afternoon off from work so I could have lunch with a friend I hadn’t seen in three years or so. We spent over an hour talking about writing, the classes she’s taking, humorous/horrific stories from when we worked together, etc. Afterward, I spent almost two hours in a coffee shop critiquing stories for one of my writing groups and revising one of my stories. I then wandered in a book store for an hour. All in all, it was a very pleasant and enjoyable day. I enjoyed it MUCH more than, say, Monday afternoon when I was at work. Isn’t there an old saying about finding something you love doing and then figure out a way to get paid for it? I don’t know if I could have lunch with friends, write in coffee shops, and wander bookstores everyday, but If I could get paid to do that, I would be a happy man.
