Where Has the Passion Gone, Ctd.
Thanks to everyone for chiming in on the passion questions: so many good thoughts! Feel free to add more!
Kato said something that I have wondered about but not wanted to believe:
Just like there is less drama in our lives at 40, maybe the same is true of passion? In other words, it’s not that we don’t encounter drama or not that we don’t have passion, but it’s more that those blood boiling moments aren’t as consuming as they once were. Maybe it’s a positive? We just THINK we should feel passionate when wisdom and age and perspective is the real achievement?
There’s a clear logic to that. And I’m not disagreeing, I’m just wondering, if that’s true then why doesn’t it feel like a positive?
Where does the restlessness come from, and what satisfies it, even in the short term?
It’s like I have that old familiar itch, but trying to scratch in the same way doesn’t quite work anymore. But I’m still itchy.
