"Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you." - Oprah Winfrey
Yesterday I met someone who reminded me why I started writing. He reminded me why I’ve spent the past few years churning out papers, and more importantly, why I started this blog. He reminded me that passion should be the driving force behind anything--especially writing.
While I won’t go into too much detail, this same man told me the story of the love of his life. A woman who, as he says, was his best friend--his partner in crime. A multitalented, beautiful woman, she was smart as a whip. Always surprising him with her knowledge and talents, she was his driving force. After a beautiful life together, this man found something he’d never known about her in their years together. Aside from her talents in math and chemistry, she was also a beautiful writer. He’d find essay after essay, love note after love note, all with such passion that he wanted to instill the same love for the art into others.
This man is helping make my dreams come true, and I couldn’t thank him enough for that.
