White Hot and Passionate
White hot and passionate is the only thing to be."
— Roald Dahl
I love the quote. I love the photograph.White hot and passionate is the way to go through life. How do you do it? I suppose it's about attitude and temperament, about taking what life gives you and turning it into roses, red wine, and beach nights. White hot suggests ebullient, open, and more than a tad hedonistic. Passionate implies intensity and strength. Put them together and you have a person who is engaging and engaged with life. In a word, alive.
The trick is in sustaining white hot and passionate. Age can fuel passion. A 25 year old person can be white hot but the wisdom of a passionate 60 year old burns hot and turns the darkest night into cool flames. At least that's what I want to believe.
