We are so fortunate to be an animal capable of recognizing this wondrous nature of ours sometimes so rewarding, sometimes so horrible. It runs deep from our fight or flight instincts to enduring love of self or another. Passion has been described in all its glorious attributes as exhibited in our philosophies, heroics, art, architecture, poetry, novels causes and conflicts. It is much, much more than praising the Lord while with a lover or in church. Read Kathleen Raine’s poem “Passion”. The dictionary describes passion as a “strong and barely controllable emotion”. Raine shows it has many ups and downs and, twists and turns. Lately we have seen a lot of all that in our town and across the country. Why is this? Is this something new? You decide. For eons authors have capitalized on this theme. It has been discussed since humans first recognized the concept and the energy within themselves. So have filmmakers, and with the publications of Alfred Kinsey (1948) and later Masters and Johnson (1961), we now know that it is the favorite and creative pastime of humans around the world (and you thought it was baseball). If you try to suppress it you get sick. Over expression brings strong and passionate responses from others and ones community. Passion however is a many splendored emotion, embedded within humans, it turns out, for good reasons. Having a sensory system, emotions and passion accounts for the survival thus far of humans, the lack of which proving fatal for the individual and others. It enriches our experience of living. The power behind human passion is a powerful energy, likely generated deep with the psyche of our being. It is fueled by nearly everything from survival needs to the insatiable wants of greed. That energy can be easily corrupted or directed at doing good. And that is where this story begins. Julian is a town bursting with passion. People are passionate about living here. Just listen to sounds of nighttime environment, participate in the many volunteer organizations or attend one of the old time plays or music festivals. Much good has been accomplished and much good will be accomplished here. Attend a Town Hall or other meeting of any of the many organizational Boards and you will experience the energy flowing with vigor and passion. Sometimes the passion is out of sorts, overly dramatic raising suspicion about the underlying motivation. Is it fear? Is this person off their meds? Does this person read or listen? An overly passionate crowd often ruins the meeting and destroys the agenda. Unfortunately that is often done intentionally. There are lots of games played with passion and the passion of others. That behavior almost never produces long-term happiness, someone almost always loses, it can be disastrous, and as history has shown, yields unpredictable outcomes. It is almost never good politics or good behavior to play with anyone’s emotions or to fuel passions. You never know where it will lead even though many who play at that game think they have it all under control. We say this knowing full well that at times in history adding fuel to the passion and emotion of a population was absolutely necessary (the attack on Pearl Harbor comes to mind). Examples of negative outcomes are ISIS propaganda and the irresponsible political rhetoric flowing out of Washington, D.C. When we first moved to Julian many years ago we attended
