Did you know what you were passionate about when you were twelve? Are they the same things that they are now?
My obvious passions are my religion and my family. Here are some minor ones:
THE STORY. It's always about the story and has always been so. Even commercials on TV have a story. My favorite is the Arby's "last day of school" one where the faculty is just as happy to be out of school as the kids and they all end up at Arby's. I have it recorded and watch it several times in a row. It cheers me up.
FINGERNAIL POLISH: On September 1st I will have worn it every day for a year.
THE COMPUTER: I can read the story, compose the story, and keep in touch with my friends. Not Facebook. Not Twitter. Just email, which I love.
SLEEP: I just need to get some earlier.
LUNCH OUT WITH FRIENDS: Where I hear their stories and tell them mine.
MOVIES: Again, the story. And the popcorn.
CLEAN HANDS, CLEAN FACE: Repentance for the soul, soap for the face. And my daughter-in-law's lavender lotion, which I put it on my face and then put my hands to my nose and breathe deep for a full minute. Then I go to sleep happy.
That's enough for tonight.
What are your passions?
