The one thing I am passionate about...
good conversations, live music, my family and friends, learning something new every day, trying to check my ego at the door, being grateful, writing, the beach (being near it whenever I have time), staying healthy, savoring moments as if they were my last, collecting life stories that are so remarkable and entertaining my great-grand children will think I'm fibbing.
I typically spend my leisure time
Being with my friends and family, yoga, finding nature and/or great brunches, not necessarily in that order, watching the clouds go by...
The most influential person in my life has been
honesty, creativity, fearlessness, good-humored, confidence, being more interested in my personality than my appearance
The first thing people notice about me
My manners, I hope. If it's a date, it's most likely that I'm painfully shy.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm constantly reading the news via the web, but I try to pepper in an old-fashioned book once in a while. The last really great book I read was about Martha Gellhorn - "I see mysteries and complications wherever I look, and I have never met a steadily logical person." Perhaps she wasn't more observant than the rest of us, but had the ability to articulate it better than most.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my health
- laughing until my face hurts
- the luck that seems to come my way, and my fearlessness to seize the opportunity
Friends Describe me as
Energetic, Genuine, Intelligent, Loyal
A little more about me
Being an executive with a demanding job and a single mother is more than any one person can handle successfully on all fronts. I made a decision four years ago to live with my father. I have the means to move and choose not to, though I've been considering it more now that my children are older. I actually like my family, and having/giving the company and the help has made it easier for my family as a whole. It might be hard for someone to understand, and those are the people I try to avoid dating.
