Passions?



for RubyTuesday


I'm reading a lot of Jon Ronson - I love his books! I just started my 6th, having read five back to back in the last two weeks. I thoroughly recommend them all! Fiction or non fiction. He reads the audio books and I find him quite delightful.









In 'So you've been publicly shamed' a company is trying to flood the internet with a girl's positive foot print in order to move the shameful incident down the google ranking, and the technician asks her 'What are you passionate about?' and she didn't know how to answer it. She was in her mid twenties. I thought 'I don't know how to answer it either.' How have I traveled more than half my life and not know my passions straight off the top of my head?




I love to travel and I indulge in the arts but am I really passionate about it?

Could you answer the question? What are you passionate about?

Linking with a random collection of photos from the last week at #KCACOLS

  4. Those are alluring photos but it makes me think of all the travel warnings I keep hearing about. They mentioned Jamaica, Mexico and I forget where else. They were popular spring break places.

    1. Not really a spring break place. Infact, quite the opposite! Dawn Fraser Baths, built in the 1880s, is the oldest pool and swimming club in Australia. It's listed on the National Trust.

  6. I feel weird knowing what I'm passionate about after reading your post and comments.

    Love that shot of the boats on the water! :)

    1. It's a good thing if you know. I've been polling and so far you are the second person. Though one person said that perhaps because of her marketing writing, perhaps she uses the word loosely (and I am wondering if I have given it a higher purpose than it needs).

    1. This is a very interesting comment. I need to think about this, and possibly then steal. Life might be my passion too.

  13. I am passionate about lots of things like learning, my community. Is it wrong to have lots of things, can it be just be one thing?
