The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about taking in all that life has to offer. I enjoy spending time outdoors in any season. I'm a big fan of live, local music. And being there for my friends, family and the community at large is very important to me.
I typically spend my leisure time
This summer I went back to outdoor/sand volleyball; now that the fall is here I'll be back on the indoor court or maybe swing dancing. At night I like to meet up with friends for dinner, go to hear live music or attend an event at the museum.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for that special combination of intelligence and playfulness. Someone who can challenge me intellectually and have me laughing uncontrollably the next moment. A true partner in life with whom I can look forward to the days to come and share in all of life's experiences.
The first thing people notice about me
People often comment on my smile, and how I stay in the moment.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I lose track of titles, but I remember one sci-fi that was fascinating because of the way it incorporated animal traits into human forms, including various prejudices. It was a very creative look at a future world where humans and other animals were cross-populated.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Health and safety
- Smart, out-going friends
- Believing in myself
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Not many people realize that I'm more vulnerable, soft and tender than I appear. My family and friends know they can depend on me, and that I can take care of myself. At the same time, I like having someone to share in decisions and I appreciate it when someone reaches out to me.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Optimistic, Outgoing, Thoughtful
A little more about me
When I meet new people, they're often intrigued by the variety of work I've done, places I've lived, the music I like, etc., because I don't easily fit into one neat little category. For example, about 10 years ago I took a year off to ride cross country on a KTM and now I don't even own a motorcycle. I was a strict vegetarian for some 20 years and now I like my steak black & blue. My lastest craze in music is techno funk despite being twice the age of anyone else in the crowd. It's all part of who I am, and there are great stories with all of those!
