The one thing I am passionate about...
I think it's important to be an active participant in life...go outdoors to enjoy and appreciate nature (hiking, snowshoeing, and paddling!), enjoy the arts, family, friends, be open to new adventures and opportunities, appreciate all that you have, try to live sustainably, and love fully.
I typically spend my leisure time
hiking, snowshoeing, walking, running/trail running (a work in progress), reading, cooking/baking, enjoying the company of friends and family, listening to music, movies on occasion, being outdoors
The most influential person in my life has been
I would like to meet someone who is a genuinely good person. Key qualities are kindness; compassion; honesty; passion for learning and for the arts; a desire to maintain a healthy and physically active lifestyle; a love of the outdoors; and a desire to share and enjoy those things with a partner. There must also be Intellectual and physical chemistry.
The first thing people notice about me
According to the friends I asked, it's my sense of humor.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"A Prayer for Owen Meany," by John Irving. The characters are memorable, and the book delves into many areas...love, friendship, family, grief, philosophy, epistemology. It leaves a lasting impression.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family because we are always there for each other in spite of challenging circumstances.
- My wonderful friends.
- My good health.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm not always as quiet and reserved as I seem when I'm on unfamiliar ground and/or with people I don't know well.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Generous, Genuine, Perceptive
A little more about me
I'm a pretty adventurous person who can just as easily enjoy a hike up a mountainside as a night at the theater or a quiet dinner at home. I'd like to take my time to get to know someone.
