This seems like an appropriate day to celebrate passion.

Passion for living life large,

Living like you know your going to die,


There are moments that cry out to be fulfilled.

Like, telling someone you love them.

Or giving your money away, all of it.

Your heart is beating, isn’t it?

You’re not in chains, are you?

There is nothing more pathetic than caution

when headlong might save a life,

even, possibly, your own.

Mary Oliver   ‘Felicity’   2016
