More about me

The one thing I am passionate about...

Cooking, Music, Movies, Walking, Spiritual Development, Friendships,Staying Youthful, My Family,My Work...

I typically spend my leisure time

(1)Most of my life I've read only non-fictional books. I believed that fiction was a waste of time. Lately I'm trying to broaden that horizon and develop an appreciation for fiction even if only by appreciating style, content and the fluidity in how some writers express thought. (2)Eating out then figuring how to cook new recipes from different ethnicities (3) Watching Movies is a guilty pleasure of mine that can probably be classified under "how I like to waste my time", but there are so many movies and so little time...plus I have not seen all the academy award winners!

The most influential person in my life has been

Wisdom and intellect. Wisdom can come from experience, an adeptness to learning from others or just plain book knowledge. But wisdom opens the door to many other virtues. It helps people deal with all the various personalities we come across in life without ever having to be confrontational.

The first thing people notice about me

People notice that I am a likeable individual. I like to be kind and more so if it comes as an absolute surprise to someone. I try very hard to make people feel at ease. It's a very fine line to be a people pleaser without compromising your own sense of value. I look like a serious person but then I'll break the ice with some sort of laughter...I can find something in common with someone and then relate to them on that level.

The last book I read and enjoyed

Normally I don't read fiction, but was recommended a book by a new friend who said "The Road" by Cormac Mccarthy was "inspiring". Being as gullible as I am,I proceeded to read and quickly discovered it was extremely depressing. I went back and questioned the "inspiring" comment and found out it was a sarcastic remark. I was however convinced to finish the book and found it to be a page turner. I read it in record time and discovered I have an appreciation for the macabre (muuuaahhahahaha!)--Sorry for the silly laugh but the situation called for it. So now, I think I like some fiction...maybe not the girly stuff...or do I? Dunno yet.

The three things which I am most thankful for

  1. I am fortunate enough to have 4 wonderful sons, 3 of which have grown into responsible men. They are wonderful caring individuals and have learned to be responsible adults. I am also fortunate to have close relationships with each one where we can open up to each other about our day to day happenings as well as future plans.
  2. I have found a career where I can meet a great variety of people, and help them make one of the most important decisions in their lives. Some of the people I've helped will be in my life as friends for a long time to come.
  3. I have known true love. I know that I can achieve it again. I have been blessed in this manner.

The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me

Honestly, I don't know what I would wish someone would notice about me. I'm pretty open about alot of things...and all someone would have to do is ask. I am kind've blunt up front and I usually will tell my flaws right in the beginning.

Friends Describe me as

Articulate, Funny, Hard Working, Intelligent
