One of my favorite sections of the Sunday New York Times is the section called Character Study. This topic highlights ordinary people who hold all kinds of occupations.
I particularly enjoyed reading about an 85 year old artist, by the name of Florence Wint. She lives in Forest Hills, Queens and literally paints for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. One of my favorite quotes from her is "I can't sleep if I don't do my artwork." Now that's what I call passion. I aspire to be Florence!
Here is a link to the article. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did!
