The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about having a peaceful relationship, honesty,gardening, curiosity, growing as an individual, and working and playing together. I love to travel, have new experiences, and try new foods. I'm assuming that we are discussing a relationship and our day to day living and not the problems in this world of ours.
I typically spend my leisure time
In my leisure time I enjoy a good book, some TV, cooking, a glass of wine with conversation and travel. I am presently reading two non fiction books. I particularly like spicy foods chinese and Indian. I have traveled quite a bit and hope to do more, perhaps one trip each year. I am finding that I do not like the short winter days of New England and might like to spend time in a better climate during the winter. I have begun a program to learn Italian because I think it might be a joy to rent a place in Italy for a month.
The most influential person in my life has been
Certainly I am looking for those virtues we usually mention, but I would like one who is curious as well. Someone who would perhaps learn a language with me or learn to cook a new dish.
The first thing people notice about me
Perhaps it is that at my age I am still an optimist. Be it a realistic optimist.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I recently finished the Larsson trilogy and thoroughly enjoyed the girl with the dragon tatoo for her brilliant mind and far out behavior. I am now reading The Lies My Teacher Told Me and Sham. At a lunch with several of my educator friends, I mentioned Lies and they were interested. I think it may make for interesting discussion at our next book club meeting.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- That my children are as well adjusted as they are. All are happy at what they are doing.
- I am thankful that I am healthy and happy and still enjoy the wonderful things in life: good food, travel, friendship and so much more.
- My son and I have a wonderful relationship which is a joy.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I think that I hold back on my sense of humor because it is rather dry and I keep it under control until I'm sure a person will understand where I am coming from.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Easy-Going, Good listener, Outgoing
A little more about me
Perhaps it is a generational thing, but I know it is better not to jump into a relationship until two people have spent some serious time together. I hesitate to write more for I have completed these sections before and it did not save and allow me to continue.
