Done with Passion.... you can tell

It’s amazing how things done with passion immediately touches us. I’ve been noticing this for so long, but it has hit me recently more than ever by several initiatives or art which completely touches my soul, and I know for sure it must have meant allot to the person who did it for it to be able to still get out of that person’s heart and transform into a beautiful idea, product, or space. That can touch me! Where I am someone of no direct relation to that initiator, expect that we live in the same world !! I have three Ammani examples which recently are making me hopeful that there is still allot of hope in that there are so many people who wholeheartedly follow their passions…. And do what they feel like doing with allot of passion.. Nadine Othman is one of these people… her art work is done with allot of passion, she stares at each of the paintings she has done and tells her story and inspiration to that painting in a very passionate way…. You just love it.. her art work is very unique! Very expressive… touches you… you don’t have to be an artist to find out that she has done it with allot of passion.. that its real art…
Adraj is another example…. A unique space done with allot of effort and little resources down town Amman….. because these people tried passionately to make the space appealing for them, its appealing for anyone who enters it… when people create a space passionately that is comfortable for them anyone who enters that space would feel comfortable in it… even if you think its not your taste of furniture or designs, you can still feel it, it touches you, and you know those people did allot of effort in that place… you can easily tell…. It touches your soul….
Interruptions, the architecture publication is another example of things you feel its soul easily… this publication is obviously done with allot of passion too… I mean I have nothing to do with architecture except that I live in a house that’s probably designed by an architect, my best friend is a great architect, I like the word architecture, I hear the word “Tasleem” more than often, I get to read allot of architectural projects in my monthly subscribed PMI magazine, as its usually one of the case studies or feature articles to highlight project management practices… But I mean that’s about it… yet I enjoyed reading through this magazine… and I felt the passion of those who did it…..

So life feels very good when you get exposed to other people’s passions in your daily life…. When you attend a touching concert where musicians are completely involved and enjoying playing on stage… you just love it…. When you attend an art exhibit and you feel the shining eyes of the artist… and you know its not a business out there…. It’s a real passion…
Life remains interesting… I just love it…
