Check out Linda G. Hill’s site to learn about Just Jot It January. Today’s prompt is “Passionate”.

I had thought about other things to write about today but I am very passionate about the problem I’m having the Media+. I went for help from WordPress and their answer was clearing the cache. That worked last night, but today not so much, The problem is back. I will go back to working on something else besides the computer.

Wish I could show you a picture of the ear warmer/headband I’m making for my husband but the Media+ isn’t working. I have no energy to fight this daily. Getting very discouraged. If it gets fixed I will tell you about a school I worked for that taught from passions of students and teachers. I was very passionate about that school. But not today. Sorry. Back to loom knitting.


Beneath the MaskBeneath the Mask by Margaret McGaffey Fisk

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t read ‘romance’ novels. Not if I can help it. But I consider Margaret McGaffey Fisk to be my friend so I felt I should try. I knew I couldn’t go wrong with her writing. I don’t think I saw a passive sentence anywhere in the book. This reading comes close after I read of Pride and Prejudice. If this were to be a contest, this would win heads down!

Passion is what wins it for me. No! Not that kind of passion! I mean the passion this young girl had pursued since she was small. But, now that she was to be presented as a woman… She wants to dance, something frowned upon back in those days.

Dawn Hyde, narrator of the Audible version of the book made this book so beautiful! Her accents and voice changes helped keep the characters separated and unique. I look forward to reading more with her voice.

Okay, for the romanticohics, there is romance in the end, but most of it is this girl coming of age and her trying to live out her passions, somehow. It makes me sad to know women of the past weren’t encouraged to follow their hearts and passions. When I start feeling like we’ve made no forward motion in the feminist movement, reading something like this shows we have made some progress.

I am looking forward to more by Margaret McGaffey Fisk!
