The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my loved ones...I am passionate about being grateful...I am passionate about seeing good in people... I am passionate about travel...I am passionate about the simplicity of what's really important...
I typically spend my leisure time
? I love to get together with friends. My friends are my family. My connections with them are important to me. They bring me joy and laughter but also help me to grow and feel secure. ? I love to be outside. My yard requires a good bit of work and I enjoy maintaining it. I have at least 10 large oaks in my yard, some well over 100 years old...the ever present sticks and branches on the ground always make for great bonfires! ? I enjoy yoga, reading, hiking, hula hooping, rock-climbing, entertaining, cards, games, sushi, going to the beach, traveling, cooking, movies, live music, craft beer...really I'm up for anything!
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for someone to laugh with and enjoy the ups and downs of life's path. A best friend....a person that you know is always in your corner unconditionally...even if we agree to disagree...someone that challenges me to be a better person, inspires me to smile and laugh, is an open communicator, and emotionally available...
The first thing people notice about me
I'd have to say my approachability. I am very open and genuinely interested in others.
The last book I read and enjoyed
World Without End, a sequel to Pillars of the Earth...intense read of over 1000 pages with complex characters...I loved it as much as the first...It's a period novel that transported me to a different time and culture....when you think you have it rough be thankful you're not living in the 1100's...haha! My favorite books include Pillars of the Earth, The Alchemist, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Giving Tree, and Siddhartha
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My loved ones...
- Life's experiences...the good and the bad
- The beauty of nature
