Have a great day! Can you believe the weather today in Van-city?
My name is Francis Arevalo. I heard about The Passion Project through my friend Jon Chiang and Jeremy Lim, both people who attended one of your photography events recently.
I don’t know exactly how to start, but for starters, I am passionate. And when I am passionate about something, I do what I can to make it work.
Two things I am trying to foster right now are photography, and spoken word. If there is room for me somewhere in the Passion Project, please let me know.
My parents taught me to follow passion from a young age, and I like to think it’s completely rubbed off on me. What you are doing over there is amazing, and I’d be privileged to be a part of it, with whatever I can offer.
Here’s an example of one of Francis’ poems: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eckSIP3Lyyw&feature=watch_response]
Way too much procrastination has led to blog hopping which led me to this….The Holstee Manifesto. Holstee is a company that creates with a conscience. Holstee, we are adopting your manifesto. We hope that’s okay. It’s just so perfect…it’s as if you wrote it for passionate people everywhere!
You heard them, go out and ask the next person you see what their passion is.
Wear your passion!
I stumbled upon this terry talk and got so jazzed. Where have you been all my life Jacqueline Chong? If you are out there Jacqueline or if anyone knows Jacqueline, please send her mucho gracias. We thank you Jaqueline for telling your beautiful, brave story of pursuing your true passion and why it is so important.
“If you deny your passion, you deny yourself.”
“Once you’ve caught it, this passion thing…this world suddenly becomes…one passion closer to triumph over human trafficking, drug abuse, illiteracy.”
“It’s what excites you…what makes your heart beat.”
