I think we are all amazed at watching a true , genius at work, so passionate and yes, let’s face it : strange………
When you do choose a “career” it is weird though that your heart is asked to be in it, but at the same time society asks you to be dispassionate, objective. How can passion be objective?
Let’s just face the fact:we all want to be passionate about something or even more things. Why not? It can be done. It may be hard to live with, but that is the paradigm isn’t it??
Throughout all my life I have felt that time has run out, so much to be passionate about. I have sung, played music, painted, sketched, created, dyed,spun, woven, knitted, designed, written. All with such passion that I forget time, forget to eat, drink , even sleep. Some people say that is why I have not been allowed to create life-the ultimate creation, but I say that is just being nice. Can you tell the Mothers’Day phenomena.. is getting to me? lol
I am still passionate. Passionate about creating music, colours, art and I still get choked up. Passion does that to you. No matter what life is. No matter what life gives … or takes, for that matter.
