There may be some retread here but some things are worth repeating, reiterating, recapitulating. If only for me.
Passion gets you up at 5am and passion puts miles underfoot. Keeps you awake at night and takes you down paths both dark and treacherous and heretofore unknown. Passion will slam you headlong into all imposed, both from within or without, definitions and limitations. Passion might break you but you’ll be hard pressed to break through without it.
Say what you want about the internet or this platform or another. I’ve had the opportunity to connect with so may passion filled, open minded and hard working people. I am inspired. It must be said that I’ve also encountered a few toxic, narcissistic, delusion and lazy people too. But I don’t spend time worrying about that. Or them. I don’t waste my time there. The others eclipse any negativity. And easily so.
This is Sage Jonsey yesterday morning. He’s got passion. He drove down from Portland in a day and then the next day got up and drove from Orange county to the very top of LA county to meet me at 6am to make some art. To discover. To explore. That takes passion and I respect it. More than I can say. Especially when some folks balk at driving 30 minutes to make something. Thank you my friend.
