“Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.”

**WARNING: SPOILERS, THIS ANALYSIS IS NOT (at the moment) MADE FOR FIRST TIME READERS OF HOUSE OF LEAVES.** This being said, I HIGHLY recommend that one reads the book cover to cover once through before reading this blog or other online materials. You have been warned.
Here I will walk you through the weird and wild world of House of Leaves. The journey is a long and strange one but in my experience, one well worth taken. This blog is intended to be read along side with the book as an aid to further understanding of the themes and numerous obscure references in this book.
