The Hungry Scholar was spending a fabulous evening at my favorite librarian’s house and waking up in the morning I heard a voice echoing from the past. “Entertainment Tonight” past, that is. You guessed it (or maybe you didn’t), Mr. John Tesh! My first thought of course, was that the robots had finally invaded, but further examination revealed that the ivory-tickling Mr. Tesh was in fact on the radio. It seems that every morning around 4 am (Miss Janet wakes early), John’s on the air, spinning discs and dispensing folksy wisdom with his soothing voice. Now, who wouldn’t listen to anything John Tesh says?
This particular morning he had all sorts of advice the Scholar was keen to listen to. Some kind of fancy LA shrink recommends that in order for us to be happy, we ought to spend the first hour of each day working on our passion. Great, I think, I’ll spend an hour reading a good book. No wait. I’ll spend an hour writing a good book. Or how about an hour on the new business? Making salsa? Miss Janet’s already dressed, so an hour spooning is out of the question. Just what the heck am I supposed to be doing? This strategy might work for those folks with only one passion, but what about the Hungry Scholar!?!
Here’s the problem: I’ve got too many passions. Is this why I’m hungry all the time? Maybe I should give John Tesh a call and ask his sage advice
Next Week: John Tesh weighs in on the Hungry Scholar’s passion problem. Or not.
