Writer's Block: Out, Out Damn Spot!

Have you ever been passionate about something to the point of an obsession? If so, how did it impact the rest of your life? Did you ever (or would you want to) break free?

When have I NOT been obsessed with something, more to the point! As far as I know, it's always been something. Having interests in things -- to the point of obsession -- has never, ever been an issue for me. However, I wouldn't say any of these obsessions have had a really negative impact, but rather a positive impact, as I know about a lot of different things, sort of through my own self-taught learnings. So whether it's silent movies or Hasidism or architecture, I've got big stores of knowledge in my head acquired through obsession.
