Anatomy of Passion: Part III

“Biology says that we are who we are from birth. That our DNA is set in stone. Unchangeable. Our DNA doesn’t account for all of us though, we’re human. Life changes us. We develop new traits. Become less territorial. We start competing. We learn from our mistakes. We face our greatest fears. For better or worse, we find ways to become more than our biology. The risk, of course, is that we can change too much to the point where we don’t recognize ourselves. Finding our way back can be difficult. There’s no compass, no map. We just have to close our eyes, take a step, and hope to God we get there.”

“Many people don’t know that the human eye has a blind spot in it’s field of vision–that there’s a part of the world we are literally blind to. The problem is sometimes our blind spots shield us from things that shouldn’t be ignored. Sometimes our blind spots keep our lives bright and shiny. When it comes to our blind spots–maybe our brains aren’t compensating, maybe they’re protecting us.”

“At the end of a day like this when so many prayers are answered and so may aren’t, we take our miracles where we find them. We reach across the gap and sometimes against all odds, against all logic, we touch… against all odds it happens.”
