via Daily Prompt: Avid
Latin – avere, to long for. Originally Avid meant “desirous to the point of greed.” Now that’s some longing for, greedy longing, passionate, insatiable. So I’m not an avid gardener, bush walker, or cook, even though I enjoy those, I’m not greedy for them. I’m really greedy for connection, soul connection. Greedy for the heart of things, be they people, nature, or spirit. Greedy for non-harming, love, compassion, conversation, friends. Longing for life in all its richness, despite the many u-turns. Now that I’m avid for. Avere.
