The one thing I am passionate about...
There are several things I am passionate about: my children, art, personal spirituality, lifelong learning. Overall I'm pursuing a life that involves all of these. I want to be engaged with the elements of life that involve and enrich me thereby counter-acting the negatives that I ("we" in america) deal with daily. Those things and people, such as crazy drivers, work politics, stress, ect. One of the things I'm most engaged in is learning about & creating visual art.
I typically spend my leisure time
I'm a person that loves variety so naming only a few things to do in leisure time is difficult, however I love reading a wide variety of articles, books, going out to eat ethnic or new foods, movies, art shows, visiting museums...these are a few.
The most influential person in my life has been
Lol-the sample answer was perfect. I'm really looking for someone who is sincere. Values honesty and has a sense of personal integrity. A guy that has a sense of humor but knows when to be serious. Someone that wants to live the second half of their life with the passion of a 20 y.o. and the sense of a mature adult.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm complimented on my eyes & smile a lot. I'm easy to talk to and engage in conversation easily with small groups of people or a single individual.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Recently re-read Sue Monk Kidd's The Secret Life of Bees. I enjoy her character developement and the reversal of a "traditional setting''. That a group of African American women help a young white teenager to an understanding of life and herself.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My children.They're in college now & are one of the best things in my life.
- Having the opportunity to return to college. It's very rewarding personally and will be-professionally.
- Friends & Faith. I have a group of friends I've known for over 10yrs--we all love & support each other. Whereas, I don't buy into the politics of "the church", I am grounded & renewed by my spiritual beliefs and community.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Perhaps that I am more wordly-wise than my demeanor suggests. I generally "read" people well and am quick to know when someone is 'playing a part' or isn't genuine. I also have a silly nonsensical side that appears once I know someone well.
Friends Describe me as
Genuine, Intelligent, Loyal, Spiritual
A little more about me
My search for the "right" guy isn't about perfection. My interest is finding someone who wants to know me as much as I want to know him, sharing some common ground and also leaving room for individuality. I am looking for quality here, not quantity--so finding "You" may take some time... I'm really enthusiastic about starting the "search" here!
