Are you hiding?

"Hiding a passion is inconceivable; because passion is in essence made to be seen."  ~Roland Barthes

"Never again clutter your days or nights with so many menial and unimportant things that you have no time to accept a real challenge when it comes along, and follow your passion.  This applies to play as well as work.  A day merely survived is no cause for celebration.  You are not here to fritter away your precious hours when you have the ability to accomplish so much by making a slight change in your routine.  No more busy work.  No more 'hiding' from success, passion or love.  Leave time, leave space, to grow.  Now. Now!  Not tomorrow!" ~Og Mandino
 "Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place." ~Zora Neale Hurston
