Hi everyone, I welcome you all to the 23rd edition of The Saturday Symphony.
Back from the month of romance.
Or for some, the month where loneliness is felt most keenly.
Cheers to making it here,
On the threshold of a March of possibility.
I’m lost and agitated
My body pines
And my mind wines
What ritual will sate my needs
Comfort my discomfort
Addiction is widely seen and understood as negative,
But is there such a thing as a good addiction?
In this Symphony, we will try to explore this notion.

Addiction at its worst
Obsessive and Possessive

A Good addiction
PONDEROUS THOUGHT Prompt
We have all been addicted to something,
In some shape or form,
The synonyms for addiction range from dependency, to craving, to habit, to infatuation and compulsion.
This month of March, share a story about addiction at its worst,
And then counter it with a tale of a passion that has saved you or someone you know.
You’re more than welcome to use art, images, and any form of writing.
