• strong and barely controllable emotion• a state or outburst of such emotion• intense sexual love
• an intense desire or enthusiasm for something• a thing arousing enthusiasm
It happens when things are going well, no, splendidly
no, scratch that, wonderfully, maybe evenonce-in-a-lifetimishly. And then, out of the pink abyss, in a moment quiet intimate and subtle, she
not just she but, each of the many many she’s who’ve come before in my romantic career, and the m
anywho will come after
asks me (and not just some similar formulation, but verbatim) this question:What is your passion?Passion? What is my passion?Yes, what is your passion?
I first associate the word “passion” with, well,
the soap opera they canceled severalyears ago
it was the one with a witch. Next I associate it with stock artist statements on programs
and placards: “Painting/Sculpting/
 Dancing/Singing/Acting/Directing/Making Art (with
‘A’) is my passion…” Then there’s insi
advertisements “Here at _____________ we’re passionate about your ______________”. Then
after a while I get passion fruit, passion flower, passion dance, Passion of the Christ. And underneath allof this is undeniable association with hot, sultry, animalistic lovemaking, and I always wonder if this mightbe the subtext, but it never is.What do mean passion?
Your passion. It’s like your life’s purpose.
 Oh. Yeah. that.
