So often we talk about passion and how passion can change the way we do things. It’s pretty magical stuff–that “P” word. Passion can be anything. It can be music or running or glitter. Whatever floats your fancy. But when passion becomes super awesome, is when it literally takes you places. And that’s what is […]

I have talked before about looking for passion or the things I am passionate about. For those unaware, my move to San Francisco meant more than just “starting a new chapter.” It also meant leaving the things I adored behind. For one reason or another, they just didn’t “travel well.” And so I have spent […]

I was asked again today where my passions lie. And, again, I sat dumbfounded. So tonight, I have stayed awake trying to figure it out. And so I have created a list for your enjoyment: Writing: Someday I hope to write for The New Yorker (now to just find something to write about) Equality: In […]

Passion is a subject that broaches my writing a lot. It is something I strive for in my day-to-day regime. I want so badly to do as someone I once knew once said, “find something I love doing, and then find someone to pay me for it.” Now if you have spent any small amount […]

I have spent the day staring at the computer waiting for the inspiration to attack the piles of work that flood my desk.   I enjoy the conversations of dear friends and read musings from true writers and wonder if could ever write as well. I have problems finding the words to say and knowing […]
