The answer: As many as your heart can handle. When it comes to passions, you are not restricted to a limited number. Passions can take on many forms! For example, passions can be creating art, making music, or helping those that are less fortunate than you. Passions can also be simple, passive acts, like writing letters for family, spending time with those you love, or watching every Marvel comic movie in chronological order based on their story timeline. When it comes to passions, only you can decide what makes you happy.
In this photo (from left to right) is Shannon McNeely, Dr. Ian Murton, and Richard Dobeck. These three individuals have lived wildly different lives, yet here they are together, sharing their love of music. I was incredibly grateful to have been included, as a musician, in this performance of Ein Heldenleben by Strauss with the San Luis Obispo Symphony. We laughed, we cried (figuratively), and we had a lot of fun.
