From NaBloPoMo Prompts: What is your secret (or not-so-secret) passion? (Guest Post by Jean Kwok, author of Girl in Translation)
I have a couple of passions - I don't always indulge in them, but they are there, certainly.
Passion #1: Musical theatre - in whatever form. I love musical theatre - live, on film, on DVD, documentary, the whole show, the CDs, everything about it. It makes my heart beat faster and it makes me sit on the edge of my seat. I remember seeing "Les Miserables" in the Broadway theatre in NYC and I literally thought I would just die right there, a happy woman.
Passion #2: reading. I miss losing myself in a book. I'm not sure what happened or why I'm not in a space where I'm reading much. I think it definitely impacts me - reading has always been a place for me to escape and to use my imagination. I guess I have just been tired and I haven't made the time to read. I need to do that. Reading Renaissance again. Maybe third time's a charm?
I think both of these are my long-term passions - they have been with me for years and years. I have other passions, but some of them are quite new - mostly, art journaling. I could probably name a bunch, but I think these things are the ones that are most impactful and keep me sane.
