I typically spend my leisure time
I like to travel and see places and people from different cultures and understand their lives and history. I like to see different geography, from the deserts of Utah to the green valleys of England, to the volcanos of South America. i like to find opportunities to speak spanish with anyone who is willing. Play ping pong.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty, and trust. as without these qualities a relationship has no foundation. Chemistry and romance, brings the relationship to a whole new level of wonder and joy. Meeting someone, and connecting on these levels would create a sincere, lasting and loving relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
That perhaps I am on the gentler, sensitive, reserve side. I am softer spoken than most, a listener rather than someone who wants to dominate, a conversation for example. They may notice that I smile and have a disarming demeanor, a person of action.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was called 'The China Price' It was about the human, ecological, and social costs in China with regard to the West purchasing cheap goods from there and all it's associated impacts. It has taught me that we are all so interconnected.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for the luck that has come my way, The luck of being born to a great family and the values they have instilled in me.
- I am thankful for the 24 years of a very successful marriage and the two beautiful daughters we have raised and the closeness i have with them.
- I am so thankful for the physical health I have, because without this I would not be able to enjoy the things in life which give me so much pleasure.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
