I wonder sometimes how people follow a dream passionately. They may be kicked down, stomped on, and ignored, but they continue to strive towards their goal.

We saw Barry tonight. Even though he has made a (perhaps) temporary choice on how to make money and secure his future, he still writes. He will self-publish, he will promote - he will.

I don't know if he suffers the same pain. Or, if his self doubts cloud his perception of reality. He wants to keep trying, which inspires me to keep trying. But, then again, I made the choice to move forward without Barry. We are so much a like in so many ways.

I hope we never figure out when "too late" is.
