Anna Maly"How important do you think it is to have a real passion in life. The kind of passion that consumes you completely. The borderline obsession passion.... That one unmistakable kind that your entire life revolves around....

"Let's take a child prodigy, a piano player who became famous by the time he turned 8, and been playing ever since, as an example. Absolute dedication to the music, endless hours spent playing piano, sacrifices, such as, say...childhood, followed by years of concerts, recording sessions, playing, playing, playing, playing..... New difficult passages, new composers, some more books on music history, some more concerts.... New conductor, and rehearsal with yet another orchestra.... Fascinating life, n'est pa? Being introduced to some more brilliant people and admiration of some very appreciative audience. How fantastically marvelous. Some are even jealous. Not me.

"Granted I would consider this kind of life wonderful but just to an extent. Yet, come to think of it, I would rather have mine. Not so brilliant, not so scheduled, not so decides, not so settled. No deep passions, no obsessions of any kind, just a continuous search and discovery.

"Always being open to new interests, I have never stayed glued to only one for a long time. No matter how captivating it may seem to do nothing else but one thing, and build my life around it, base my life on it, make it my life, I would consider it narrow. The horizons are to be widened, not narrowed. I keep mine wide open." Check out Anna's web page at www.Anna-Maly.com.
