The one thing I am passionate about...
reading, art, writing, playing the fiddle, friendship, family, good movies, good beer, hiking, sunrises and sunsets and everything in between, laughing and smiling, good music. I look at life as a sensual experience, nothing is to little nor to large to not be appreciated.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to read and spend a lot of time doing it...opening a new book for the first time thrills me. I also love to hike and try to get one in every day.Still learning about Phoenix but I love art exhibits, car shows, museums, the Phoenix Zoo, eating out or in, watching movies either in a theater or curled up on the couch at home, and ok I confess I will stop in my channel surfing and watch the D-backs if they are on.
The most influential person in my life has been
I want a man who knows who he is...Someone who is honest, loyal, affectionate, passionate, funny, likes to laugh and smile, and a good communicator. I am looking for a best friend, a confidant, someone who I can share my everyday trials and triumphs and who willingly shares his with me. Someone I can laugh with, cuddle up on the couch with or who will walk and appreciate the world around us, holding my hand in his...... someone who is flexible and appreciates my independence and yet loves that I need to be taken care of at times.
The first thing people notice about me
My smile and my laugh. I have been told my laugh "feeds the soul" I don't know if that is true or not, but I do know that life can be and is humorous .. My friends also say I am trusting and giving almost to a fault. This is definitely true, though at this time in my life I am not a pushover, I still will trust first and ask questions later, it is who I am and not something I ever wish to change. I am also very affectionate and want that in return... the gentle touch in passing, a kiss of the neck while standing at the counter, holding hands, cuddling. We as humans crave each others touch and I am no exception.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I just finished "The Mockingjay" which is the third book of the Hunger Games series. I am currently reading the second book of the Game of Thrones series. They are both enjoyable for their own reasons. But in short I love books so let's talk!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My children
- my education
- my creativity
Friends Describe me as
Genuine, Happy, Loyal, Passionate
A little more about me
hmmm, this is always the hard part.... I am smiling almost all the time, I laugh at myself most often because life is just funny and mine is filled with laughter, but I can be serious. I have been in Phoenix for almost five months (moved from northern Indiana) and am loving it so far. I have two grown sons that I love and am very proud of. I am pretty much an open book, not many questions about myself bother me. Also I treat everyone, be they a garbage collector or a King with the same regard and respect until they prove they are unworthy of it and I live by the Golden Rule. Hmmm.. I feel life is a sensual experience, so savor every moment.
