The rest of the definition was all Jesus dying and stuff...
Hey, maybe you're passionate about him. Maybe he's your homeboy. Amigo. Comrade.

Anyway - a while back someone asked me what I was passionate about.
I didn't really have a super solid answer.

Matthew's asked me this before, too.
When we first started, he came over and commented on my collection of musicals on vhs and dvd. (damn yeah, I still had my vcr.) He asked me if that's what I was passionate about. Yeah, I was into it, but at that time I really couldn't define what my passion was.

**side note: As I'm typing this, Matthew is being passionate about the US Census doing commercials.**

If you email me, you'll notice that my addy is 'muselyn'. It was my very first screen name on the interwebs those many years ago.

Muse: noun.
(definition goes into a bunch of Greek mythology first, then-)
1. any goddess presiding over a particular art
2. (sometimes lowercase) the goddess or the power regarded as inspiring a poet, artist, thinker, or the like.

and then my middle name.

So, yeah (duh) I have a super solid answer for the question.

I've always been passionate about The Arts. I'm completely unable to pinpoint it or narrow it down or focus on just one thing that falls under The Arts umbrella.
Dance, acting, painting, sculpting, music, singing, drawing, story telling....
I'm absolutely in love with it all.
That's my passion!

Tell me what yours is.
