A Little Passion and A Little Mouse

PASSION -a fervent or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything; experience of strong love or sexual desire. [Passion Week begins here. Click for this week's Bliss Initiatives.]

Woo Hoo!! Heading to the land of Mouse today! My dear Sweetie surprised me with a little Disneyland getaway for this weekend! I did not put Disneyland specifically on my Birthday Passion List but you may have noticed number 20 on my list is Fairy Dust. What this means to me is I have a passion for suspending reality. I am always interested in kicking wonder up a notch and Disney is a great place to do just that. It is so easy to get ultra serious and forget the magic in living. A passion for fairy dust reminds me not to take the wonder for granted.

Being whisked off for the weekend does mean that my posts will be happening in absentia so please forgive me if I don't respond to comments for a while! I promise I will come back all invigorated, passionate and ready for a whimsical week! See you back here "live" next Wednesday.

  1. EEEK!! What a WONDERFUL surprise!! Oh, fun, fun, fun...enjoy every single minute of it (and then a few for me!)!


  2. I hope you have a great trip! Do tell us all about it, I've never been to Disney :)

  3. Oh, you will have so much fun! If you are able, try to visit Tinkerbell's fairy grotto at dusk (or after dark.) The little lights twinkling in the windows of the tiny fairy village lining the water-ways surrounding the grotto are so dear. And please tell Tinkerbell I say "hello" and send her my best regards!
