We all have passions. We all have the one or two things that we can turn to that put our lives right when things are rough. I am fortunate enough to have a few, music, canoeing and dogs. Music ( something I talk about frequently ) can instantly change my perspective and lift me back up. Canoeing and simply being active outdoors will always ground me. Dogs have an unconditional acceptance of us and  being greeted by a wagging tail when you've been gone for an hour or even a minute is always comforting. I hope that everyone has a chance to follow or experience at least one of their passions. In this hyper accelerated world I believe our passions can help to bring some reality and meaning back into our lives.
