The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about the life I've lived so far. I develop new products and help companies innovate for a living and I hope that my efforts will somehow make the world a better place to live. I don't work in hi-tech. But being at the leading edge is still fun.
I typically spend my leisure time
In my leisure time, I like to be out in the world discovering. This may mean shopping, going to museums or going for a drive. I love playing tennis, bowling, visiting art galleries, going to the movies, walking along the beach, or vacationing. I also enjoy reading. Lastly, I thoroughly enjoy having everyday and heart-to-heart conversations with my mate. Without the latter, life would be very unfulfilling.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for someone who wants to enjoy life. It doesn't have to be elaborate. Shopping, going to dinner or the movies, or maybe to a show. Just being together or talking on the phone is what's important. I'm sure bigger things will come over time.
The first thing people notice about me
I think people notice that I'm a very good listener. I take a sincere interest in those around me. The world isn't about me. Learning what's important in other people's lives is so much more satisfying.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was "The Devil's Eye" by Jack McDevitt, my favorite science fiction writer. In it, the heroine, and a very normal person, ends up helping to save an entire world from devastation -- just by being herself and by showing the inner love she has for others. I've reread this book several times -- and the ending never fails to move me.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am very thankful for the life I've lived so far.
- I am very thankful for having a family which stuck by me during hard times.
- I am very thankful for having a loving son and daughter with whom I am be very close.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can be very passionate and funny when I want to be. But I normally don't show that side the first time you meet me. Only special people get to see it.
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Intelligent, Perceptive, Thoughtful
