OBSERVING HUMANITY

image

I am at the Atlanta airport waiting for my flight on to Orlando and I have been doing one of my favorite things : people watching.  I have smiled at folks walking by to see if they would smile back….about one in ten.  Meet my sea turtle friend who hangs out on the North Shore of Oahu…..I wonder how many people he watches everyday and I wonder what his thoughts are of humanity? Any thoughts readers?

 

PASSION

Yesterday while shopping at the Ala Moana Center I decided to buy a book on WordPress to teach myself formatting and how to develop my site. I noticed a section of books behind me that shared a similiar title with the word “Passion”. I was curious to know why they’re so many books on the subject and many are written by Doctors. Also, to my surprise, a common theme “finding or living your passion” was in singular tense.

So I pose these two questions:

“Am I the only person that has many, many passions? And if I have many passions are they not considered passions by the doctor scholars?”

I looked up the official definition by M W (Merrian Webster) and there are six definitions listed, here is the order: 1. Suffering of Christ night before crucifixion, 2. Emotions, 3. Ardent affection, 4. A strong liking or desire for, 5. Devotion to some activity, 6. Sexual desire.

I consider myself to be a passionate woman because I do seek pleasure in all I do and I am devoted to my list of many. My passions are: surrounding my self in nature as often as I can, laughter, observing animals, observing people, living in Hawaii, love making that transcends mind and body, photography, watching sports, discussing sports,fitness, healthy eating, spiritual practice and serving others…..you get my point, right?
