My parents admitted their greatest passions today. With nearly 50 years of both good and bad life experiences both parents today took a moment to really think about what is their greatest passions.
My mother’s long time passion for most of her life still remains just as strong as when she first began it.
“My greatest passions are swimming, as well as building or fixing up houses and selling them,” Mum said.
With recent falls in the real estate market, selling property has become a real trauma for the family of four living near the town of Bundaberg.
“I am fixing up my third house at this moment,” Mum said.
Mum said although her passion has been building/fixing up houses and selling them, she has decided that she won’t be continuing this cycle as she is getting too old to continue the hard psychical labour required.
However, her passion of swimming will continue for many more years to come.
“I plan to continue swimming until I can no longer due to any medical or age related problems which stop me,” Mum said.
After 33 years of riding motorcycles dad’s passion has not gone anywhere even after an accident when he first began riding motorcycles.
“My greatest passion is my motorcycle, I have loved riding my motorcycles for all of my life,” Dad said.
Dad owns a 2005 Ducati ST3 bought recently after wanting to upgrade from his Ducati ST2 that he had owned for 7 years.
He plans to continue with his passion for many years to come.
“I love riding motorcycles and I will not be the driver for any other mode of transport,” Dad said.
I could not complete part c to the practical task for week 5. This is due to the wishes of those interviewed that they not have their picture uploaded onto the internet.
