Reflections On A Hand Shake Game
“We welcome passion, for the mind is briefly let off duty.” – Mignon McLughlin
By Rich Lindbloom
In 1979 Graham Parker recorded his album, Squeezing out Sparks. The album contained one of “them” songs, you know, the songs that you are compelled to turn up the volume 3 to 4 notches. If you’re really bold, and no one else is in the car with you, you might even try to sing along. One of the lines in the song Passion Is No Ordinary Word reminds me those moments in life, whether victorious or in defeat, where passion rules the day;
“Passion is no ordinary word ain’t manufactured or just another sound that you hear at night.”
Certainly, what we are passionate about in life takes on many forms.
