WHAT IS YOUR MOST DEFINING PASSION?”
here’s the text from the email she sent out…
Since “The Signature of All Things” is entirely about one woman’s passion (for botanical exploration, in Alma’s case), passion has been much on my mind lately. My defining passion, of course, is writing. Also, melted cheese. I would so enjoy hearing all about yours…So here’s what you do! Just click this tab and answer the question, and if I love your answer most, I’ll contact you personally, and send you the book!
OK, see why I could not pass it up…
And here’s what I wrote:
Ever since I had my first child strange things started to happen to me and my surroundings including the people around me, or so I thought. My head was overtaken by WHY and had no way of getting to the BECAUSE of things…It stayed that way all through my second pregnancy and up to my 40th birthday, that’s an almost 10 year span of my life…A few months before my 40th bday I started to write a blog just to free up some valueble space in my fleeting brain capacity and I realized that by writing I found answers in my words…so I kept writing and started to read more, then to listen… everything slowly took me to my passion which is UNDERSTANDING. Though understanding is not the same as having answers, but it does give my mind and soul some peace. Now I understand a bit better why I have memory lapses, why my skin, hair and other unmentionable areas are drying up; why my husband and I talk but don’t communicate at times or when my highschool students don’t appreciate my efforts, I understand and not take it personally, they are also going through huge stuff… and many other things… I don’t need cold, hard facts to get me from point A to point B, I just need to UNDERSTAND that I might not need to get to point B at this time… thanks for this chance to participate and moreover to ponder on this, big hug…all the luck on your next launch, Alexandra btw, love the cover!!
Oh, I do hope I made sense!!
Studying has let me learn and learning has taken me to the ultimate objective that is UNDERSTANDING…
So, wish me luck, jajajaaa, could lightning strike twice? we’ll see 🙂
