"And Daddy, they took my boot! But I was saved! I was saved by a flying wild man...in a loin cloth!" (What film? A scrumptious red pear to the first to guess correctly in the comments!)
What does it mean to be passionate about something?
"Can"t eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, World Series kind of stuff" is how the Olsen twins described love in It Takes Two (a 1995 film starring Kirstie Alley and Steve Guttenberg).
We say sometimes that someone lives for something, that they don't do anything but, that they live, eat and breathe their passion. Honestly, it sounds exhausting. Maybe that's just because I'm four months pregnant and have a two year-old, so everything sounds exhausting. But it also means I don't have time to do nothing but my passion. I've got laundry to do!
Does that mean I'm not passionate about my writing? Does it mean that writing is not the only thing that I'm passionate about? ('cause I sure love my two littles!)
My husband is into sci-fi, firefighters, Boy Scouts and martial arts. He doesn't get to do those much right now either. The other night, we were watching Jackie Chan's recent Karate Kid, talking of the day he could go to the dojo again, accompanied by our son.
A quote from the film struck me. It's the defining scene when the master shows the student that he has indeed been learning kung fu. Jackie Chan says, "Everything is Kung Fu. It lives in how we put on our jacket and take it off. How we treat other people..."
What is your passion? How do you live your passion?
