So, back to my internal questioning out loud. I know we all do this. I think for the longest time this article has been brewing. I’ve been meaning to publish prolifically. I think this is the start of that.
But, onto more questioning. Back in the day, 20 plus years back, I was big into theatre. I feel I’m a powerful force backstage and with lighting and other techie type stuff, but still. AND I feel I’ve always been a really good voice actor. I do love cartoons and all things anime. Is that where I belong? Is that who I am?
I’ve been running/playing tabletop rpg’s (Dungeons & Dragons for example) for 37 years. I know. I’m an old basement dweller. On any given day, I’m a walking bundle of ideas for entire series and worlds of superheroes, science fiction, manga/anime, fantasy, martial arts… and oh so much more. Is that who I am? Is that my purpose?
Before I became a world class Dispatch Specialist, I was scrubbing floors, emptying trash, and scrubbing toilets for a living. (No desire to go back to that last one.) Here’s where I disagree with most 3D rooted folk and my wife in particular. I’m way, way more than I do for a living. This is a paycheck. This puts money in someone else’s pocket. Not fulfilling. Not energizing. Not my purpose.
In an effort to keep this article short and sweet, I’m going to leave off here and continue in Part 3. (Have I mentioned I love working on series? Yeah.)
