@Claudia - "push on the pedal of my inner Ferrari's engine!" that's a great way of putting it. And thank you for your kind words.

@Peter - if I were to use one term for how I operate I would use "energy", that's what fuels my engine. In that case I will need to ask myself about direction :) I'm glad enthusiasm and love come across. The point on longing you make merits revisiting.

That was a great post! Thank You!!!


No, I do not consider you or your writing passionate- I believe
you serve others with enthusiasm and love.

To my mind, this is the opposite of passion with its tendency to serve the self and disconnect ourselves from others. I've noticed that loneliness and longing keeps company with passion.

Then again (and as an aside), I wonder what we notice.

Thanks for the quote from Sue Grafton - Though it begs the question - If its energy - where is it going and how do you give it a different direction to the last couple of years.
