Number 1 Passion

Prompt:  Number 1 Passion.  What is your #1 passion in life?  Now, imagine what would happen if you incorporated that passion into your life daily.  Write down your passion and keep it close to you.  Remind yourself of it daily, just like brushing your teeth.  (Author: Eric Handler)    

My Passions 

A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face.  It is one of the few havens remaining where a man’s mind can get both provocation and privacy.  ~Edward P. Morgan

My loves are a precious few.  My passions are many—people, politics, art, music, and more.  Books are number one on my passion list.   E-books, paperbacks or hardcover, I’m passionate about every type.

Hidden inside each book, all my other passions can be found.  Books introduce me to distant people and places, teach me about the arts, and encourage me to write.   They expose me to new ideas and ancient thoughts that feed my social activism.   Books play a role in my daily duties.  I turn to them for answers to arguments.  They are a source of solace when needed.  I rely on books to inspire when doubt discourages.

A daily dose of a good book kindles my passions.   Those passions push me to move a million obstacles out of the way of progress.  And they encourage me to move forward when I want to stand still.
