Peeks of Passion


Just a few days ago I went on a little journey with one of my daughters and grandchildren.

We went to Klyde Warren Park in Dallas Texas-it was simply wonderful to be part of such

a large group of mankind all blending together in harmony.



Bright and colorful food trucks line up along the side of this city park and the food is amazing.

We had one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches ever and my daughter and I added tomato slices-

YUM!!

Besides the beautiful blue skies, marvelous company and harmony all around us.

This statement about sauce said it all, but I took it a step further and replaced

"EXTRA SAUCE," with  PASSION.

Now lets read it-

We do not charge for PASSION, Passion is a gift to mankind and WE SHARE IT FREE!



Seriously, I was not the only one feeling this passion for life on this sunny day,.

Passion was all around us, Mom's and Dad's pressed into the moments of the minute.

Engulfed in the activities of the hour.

Professionals in skirts and suites walked by without even so much as checking their cell phones.

Present in the moment of that perfectly blissful, blue sky day.

Passion is being aware, passion is being awake, passion is feeling alive.

Yeah Baby, living with passion is the real deal, it's not virtual, it's not purchased from a store.

It's around us everywhere, if we just stop, breathe and look.

I will tell you this, since we started this Passion, Purpose, Productivity Project,

I see passion all around me and sometimes in unlikely places.




Passion doesn't come bottled neatly in a jar, it comes messy, beautiful and delightful.

It comes with chocolate, and messy faces, tears, tantrums and woes for all of us at all ages.

Young, old, in between-we are all in this business of aging together.

Growing up and growing old-is not easy for any of us.

Passion takes risks of getting hurt, disillusioned, dissapointed and living to the very fullest moment.

Passion has no room for complacency, for playing it safe or holding back, Passion runs like a race

horse to win the last moment with energy, hope, tolerance and life.




Passion is contagious, just like a laugh, a smile a hug.

Passion is a gift to mankind, so go and share it cuz' you know it is free.

  3. Your grandchildren - my grandchildren - bring more passion out of me than anything else. They are so cute and you are so blessed. Was that you in the pink jacket and in the last picture with your arm around your daughter - beautiful woman!

    1. Whoops! "del" was supposed to be "feel".

  7. Beautiful grandchildren, and the dog ain't too bad either :).

    Speaking of dogs...I can't think of any creatures who know more about passion than dogs. We could learn a thing or two from them!
