Passion never dies

Some people say you never forget how to ride a bike. You may fall off once or twice, but after a couple of minutes, you feel ready to take on the longest road, reassured by your renewed skills and confidence. Well, I think it's probably the same with passion. The passion for creating things, for drawing, for letting words flow into an empty piece of paper, longing to be written upon.

Sometimes passion is lost for no apparent reason. The novelty simply wears off and you feel like you have been doing this over and over again. And then passion, rebel as it is, finds another new place to go into, and you forget that once upon a time you loved doing something. Time goes by, and the love you once felt seems now faded, part of a distant life.. but in reality, its never gone away, it has just been waiting patiently in an unexpected corner, waiting for the right time to come out and take you by surprise.

Today I took the wrong turn, and hey, there it was.. blood vessels rushed to expand and let my brain cells activate again. I rejoice at the realization of something new and exciting coming back my way.. yes, exciting and yet familiar, and making you wonder why you let it run away in first place :)
