What word is "passions"in this context, I started to learn with Lingq But it is disappointing. to many writing mistakes. did you mean passons ?
If you look closely at the text, you’ll notice that the author doesn’t use only the present tense, but also the past one. He mixes both, he plays between the current moment and the memories. Nous passons = present (présent). Nous passions = imperfect (imparfait).
Here is a link (among many others) for the French conjugation: passer - Conjugaison du verbe passer
