NaBloPoMo today is all about passions.  The prompt is to have the writer tell about one of their secret or not so secret passions in life.

I'm a pretty open book person.  It takes about a week on here to gather that I'm a nut about books and words and writing.  People and kids and family are a big stinking deal to me.  I'm pretty bent on trying to be as fully alive and present as possible in this life.  I love good food and time spent in my kitchen.  I love that I have the freedom to be creative in so many parts of my life.  I'm pretty adamant that a little person doing a small thing can make a huge difference and you'll never fully see your impact in this life.  I believe that all of life should come with some kind of sound track.  I believe in laughter and tears and the fact that the best lives are bittersweet ones, lived right on the edge of in between perfect and heart ache.

I don't know if I'd call any of those passions, as much as they are simply a part of my core.  They are pieces of the essence of who I am.  I want to get to the end and know I lived all in, missteps and all.

What about you?  What are  your passions?
