Malin and I have just watched the season finale of So You Think You Can Dance and it was so wonderfully beautiful. There is something magical, enchanting, something enthralling about seeing passionate people doing what they love most. Be it dance, be it music, be it writing, be it whatever rocks your world. Joss Whedon said it better than I could ever do:
Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping… waiting… and though unwanted… unbidden… it will stir… open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us… guides us… passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love… the clarity of hatred… and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we’d know some kind of peace… but we would be hollow… Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we’d be truly dead.
Please, do the world a favor and follow your passion. Enthrall us. Inspire us.
