The one thing I am passionate about...
I am very passionate about traveling, writing and trying out new mom and pop restaurants wherever I go. As a child I was always asking questions and almost always being referred to our set of World Book Encyclopedias to find my answers. lol Those books are long gone, but I still ask questions, seeking to learn more about the world around me.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy spending time with friends, volunteering at church or within the community and learning new things. I also enjoy being creative. I write poetry, short stories, movie scripts, blog entries and I enjoy capturing beautiful moments with my camera.
The most influential person in my life has been
Loyalty. It seems to be a dying quality. No I haven't been burned in that area, but it is a quality that I really admire in a guy. I have always been loyal to my friends and family and have reaped generously from those relationships. I am hoping to meet someone who exhibits that same quality.
The first thing people notice about me
People usually notice how amicable I am. I am generally good natured and enjoy causing others to smile. I have always enjoyed having a good time. I usually will be the person to break the ice in a quiet room (not in an annoying way though).
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read Carol Burnett's biography this past summer. In her book she talks about her journey through entertainment. What really made an impression on me was a situation that occurred early in her career. She lived in a boarding house in New York with a few other women who were seeking a career in entertainment. They experienced difficulty finding employment because they did not have agents. Problem was agents didn't represent the unemployed. Instead of waiting for someone to give them a chance they created their own production and invited the agents. They found employment as a result. They CREATED opportunities instead of waiting for them.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My mother
- Peace of mind
- the ability to find humor in every day occurrences
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Sometimes people don't realize how down to earth I am. Depending on the setting in which I meet people some assume that I am super spiritual with very little awareness of what is going on in the world. Once people begin to talk to me they realize my diverse interests and ability to relate to a variety of people.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Good listener, Optimistic, Spiritual
A little more about me
Please do not send messages requesting my telephone number. I am willing to try this out and take my time to get to know someone via correspondence. If things go well then we can progress to telephone contact. So many people want to rush the process. If you're looking for a fast track, keep it moving. If you're willing to take things a little slow, shoot me a message with a few engaging questions. I'll respond.
