I find that when talking to people, the conversation invariably turns to sacred music, in some form or another.
And I end up passionately talking about it, to the point where I feel like people are rolling their eyes.
Usually, the person seems honestly interested, but even the things which I say that (I feel) are rather basic, even good Catholics don't have a clue about.
So I end up thinking, ok, back to square one. and I start explaining
But I worry that people start to find me boring, as if, I can't talk about anything except my job and music and liturgy! But that's just my passion.
Once in a while, I do start to go on a tirade about something else like recycling or drinking diet pop, and then people are like, wow, Mara, you are just passionate about very specific topics!
I just don't want to become one of those people who can only talk about one thing...
