NaBloPoMo Day 10 what is your secret (or not so secret) passion?

Now.... there's a prompt i can sink my teeth into... because... well... heck... passionate pertty much defines me... though I'm not terribly certain that this isn't more aligned to "guilty pleasure"   I'm going to veer off into another direction.  Not so secret passion-- words.  I don't read books, i devour them.  as many as five a week, but the sad thing is, since i got mommy brain, i read them, and then remember absolutely nothing about them... until I begin rereading one something finally strikes me as familiar.  I am creful with wiords-- I say exactly what I mean, i mean exactly what I say, so when i question you, it is not because i'm being difficult but rather because I'm making sure that you mean what you are saying.  Another not so secret passion-- chocolate... preferrably with caramel or mint, but any old chocolate will do.  I make chocolate sandwiches-- warm toasted bread with melted chocolate...  oh goodness... yum... best on crusty french bread...   Another not so secret passion-- music.  I love music.  all the time,  though i occaisionally crave silence, it is usually only from voices.   I spend my day working retail, and i raise a four year old, so there is noise around me all the time... voices voices voices... and it's not that i don't want to hear ou, but sometimes I'd like you to be quiet.  Or need someone else.   Another not so secret passion, but only recently really awakened in me is that I love to watch your soul get wings.   It gives me great peace and joy to watch as someone discovers/uncovers the voice in his or her heart.    As for a secret passion... well... if i told you, it wouldn't be that anymore...   So... tell me, what sets your soul on fire?

Dancing. I lose myself in dancing. I would rather dance than do just about anything. It is how I express my emotions. It' makes me happy and joyful.

Photography. I love taking pictures of people, things, experiences, my travels. It is the way I tell stories. I match words to pictures.

Singing. When I sing, I put my whole self into it. I can sing all the time. It is something I rarely share with anyone. This is exposing my emotions, more than dance. I sang before I danced. Perhaps I should share it with someone.

What sets my soul on fire... hmmmm... art. That first moment when a spark of a creative idea springs to my brain and I can actually FEEL my brain cells firing with thought and color...

For me is is a combination of Pandora and working at my art table drawing faces, creating a collage, learning how to make beautiful eyes....anything creative. It's not the same without soothing "liquid mind" (a real composer!) type of music melting all over me as colors flow from my pens or paint brush. A day with out art and music involved is a day with a big hole in it. I, too, love words; their meaning, nuances, etc., so like Kaere, I question people at times to make sure I got what they were really meaning to get across to me. Heart to heart.....

I have been wondering what "NaBloPoMo" was, and now I see! thanks!
Well for me it's just being creative, getting my hands dirty, with paint, glue, dirt, flour, whatever, but being creative!
Thankyou Kaere!
