You can make anything interesting.

Take this blog.

This guy's gimmick is, he's going to listen to audio clips of Eckhart "As Seen On Oprah" Tolle for THREE years.

Wow. To me that sounds crazy and boring and completely missing the point of Tolle's writing at the same time.

Yet the guy is writing about it.

And damned if he hasn't made it interesting.

I still think his mission is crazy and boring and missing the point (*).

But it's also compelling reading.

In the words of my late brother, "It doesn't matter if you win or lose, so long as it makes for a good story."

Good luck, buddy

I'll be reading.

(*) Then again, in his defense, "crazy, boring, and completely missing the point" would be an accurate description of MOST people's life paths--mine included.
