The one thing I am passionate about...
Art, theatre, dance performances, alternative music, roots music. I am also interested in immigrant/refugee rights, the environment, and overall sense of justice. But this does not mean that I preach to others....because that is polarizing.
I typically spend my leisure time
craft/art activities, walking in Forest Park, watching Blue Grass shows, going to Happy Hour, watching movies.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who is open and not judgemental. Someone who has a sense of humor. Integrity is important as well.
The first thing people notice about me
I am a little shy at first. But once I feel comfortable I am pretty social and enjoy talking to different people.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I tend to start books and not finish them....I can get distracted. But one of my favorite books is The Grapes of Wrath by Steinbeck. I am currently reading Lark and Termite by Jayne Anne Phillips.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my life long friends. They have been there for me in different stages of life. I am thankful that I could be myself with them and I support them unconditionally.
- I appreciate living in the Pacific Northwest with all of its beauty. There it still so much to discover. I enjoy living in Portland because I can get my 'city fix' but yet have such close proximity to nature.
- I am thankful that I can see life with a lot of gray...life is not black and white to me. This affords me the opportunities to live a life that values creativity, and to appreciate people from all backgrounds. To be open to different ways of thinking.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I have a big heart.
