The one thing I am passionate about...
Oh, I am passionate about so much it's hard to know where to begin. Beauty. Democracy. Balancing individual freedom with what's best for society. Movies, musical theater, making love to the man of my dreams..! I'm passionate about sticking up for the little guy, who may not have the power to fight for what he wants or needs. I love underdogs in sports and in life.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to hike, or just walk around outdoors, especially on or near a beach! I love being just about anywhere under the sky. I love a good meal and conversation about things that matter, be they personal or political.
The most influential person in my life has been
Compassion, intelligence, and a sense of humor. If I can find these three things together, I'll have hit the jackpot! It's amazing how easy it is to find two of the three, and how tough to find all three in the same person. Compassion is usually the missing element.
The first thing people notice about me
My energy level. I'm typically a very up, positive person. People have joked that when I walk by I create a breeze because I tend to swoop rather than stroll..!
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Devil in the White City. It's a nonfiction book that reads like a thriller, crisscrossing the story of the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893 and the country's first serial killer, who preyed on the fairgoers. The writing was excellent, and the stories of various people and even the construction issues with the fair itself so fascinating that I understand it's being made into a film!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Amazing friends. Really great people.
- This planet. This is an amazingly beautiful place we all share.
- My gifts. I was blessed with certain talents, and I try to respect and honor those.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My intelligence! Sometimes people mistakenly think that because I'm smiling and friendly I'm perhaps not that discerning. Au contraire! ;-)
Friends Describe me as
Intelligent, Passionate, Romantic, Sweet
A little more about me
I need time to get to know and love you. I might be tremendously attracted to you, but at this point in my life, there has to be more than just that sensual attraction before I can get intimately involved with you. I want to know you, to know what we are like together, if there's a spark that has a chance of lasting for years, not weeks. I'm worth the wait, and you should be, too! ;-)
