Living Life is My Passion

Living life is my Passion On Saturday, I attended the memorial service of a beautiful lady and friend. She was 62 and died suddenly from cancer. As I was reflecting on her beautiful and very full and active life, I was reminded of a comment made to me by my friend aninvestment advisor, a few weeks back. She said “living life should be our passion” As I thought about those simple words, I thought, yes, so brilliantly stated and so true. Simple things like making chili on cold days, making turkey dressing on turkey day, making long dog walks a ritual, cooking salmon to a perfect temp, making Caesar salads par excellence, making music, making love, and hearing two wine glasses make a clinking sound as they touch while two sit close together on bar stools...all things and more that rhyme without a scheme and end with the passions. Not just a bad way to live life, but perhaps the most important and only way to live life.

About the Music

About the Music   Refel Rushing’s moving “Love over Time” album grew from his observing and participating in the experiences of falling in love, falling out of love, and falling back in love. As he reflected on love relationships that may endure to the end of an individual’s time on earth or change across the spectrum of time, Refel contemplated, “What is life when asked in this love relationship context?” He concluded that it is a collection of seasons which all people experience. These songs bring to life the seasons of a love relationship — from the magical moment of falling in love and living in love to knowing it is over, departing, and offering the possibility of falling in love again with the same partner or one who is new. Refel and his genius orchestrator partner Jay Hinson thank you for listening to their work. >For more info click here< Click here to download and share the first two songs of this incredible journey
