Passion: ecstasy, devotion, fervor, intensity, spirit, zeal
When and where did I feel such passion?
As a child, the Girl Scout camp
As a young mother, holding my newborn son
As an adult student, entering the graduate library at University of Texas for the first time.
As a newly retired teacher, sitting at the Rio Grande Gorge during a Natalie Goldberg workshop.
Nature, new life, wisdom
