Burning feelings

1202

Obsessions can have many faces for good and for worse.

That someone has a “mission” a case they are passionate about – an obsession
it can be very rewarding for all of us – so someone taking heavy lifting for all of us.

Some do it by simultaneously “minimizing” their own person.
(as Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandh, Dalai Lama and many others)Some do it different the bulldozer way – by using their personality active and direct.
(as Martin Luther King, Winston Churchill, Lech Walesa, Vaclav Havel and many others)
.
Some others on the self-promotional way and perhaps only in their own interests way.

Passion is a positive obsession – obsession is a negative passion
(Paul Carvel – ecrivain et éditeur belge)

My passion is to visit places that tell a story and meet the locals and hear their stories
here the southern belgian city of Bruges and the northern french city of Amiens
  both cities with lots of stories.

The inspiration comes from the worth visiting blog “Ese’s Voice

  1. Yes, when it is about obsessive missions, there’ s a very fine line between the good, the bad and the ugly, unfortunately. I really do like the quote, the photos and the connection between them as well as your passion to visit the cities with so many stories to tell. 🙂

      Agree with you there’s a very fine line between – often the lines are crossed – I guess there’s alway will be a risk so we have to be positive but not naive… 🙂

  2. Hello Drake! You’ve written a thing I feel in tune with me: “My passion is to visit places that tell a story and meet the locals and hear their stories”… in fact that is the same reason for what I like travel! Unfortunately I can’t do it as often as I would like 😦 Beautiful images of Amiens. Maybe one day I’ll visit this city, you gave me the desire to do it 😉 I really like your post. Have a good week!

      Thanks a lot, really appreciate your much too kind words… 🙂

      Yes if we have the chances so travel and meeting new “strangers” – would make the world a much more positive place – because there so will be more friends than ghosts among the strangers… 🙂 🙂 😉

      Have a wonderful week too… 😉

      Thanks a lot, so glad you like it – really appreciate your words – the famours danish author Hans Christian Andersen said “To travel is to live” – I agree with him if travel includs meeting all the “strangers” too… 🙂 🙂

  4. Love how you share your stories, insights, and thoughts! I think I have the same passion is to visit places and learn about the world 🙂 Great post, Drake!

      Thanks a lot, so glad you like it – really appreciate your words – yeah isn’t wonderful to learn about others, I believe that knowledge and to meet strangers – is much better than sitting in front of the tv and build up fear of strangers because we don’t know them… 🙂 🙂

      Tusind tak, dejligt du kan li’ det – jeg har altid hodt ku’ li’ at møde mennesker og faktisk allerhelst på deres egen hjemmebane – det tror jeg man lærer mest af og det er min ‘egoistiske’ skjulte agenda – at lære og blive klogere på livet… 🙂

  5. I adored my time in Bruges soaking up the stories written in the walls. I haven’t been Amiens but it looks fascinating. What a great obsession.
