The one thing I am passionate about...
I love things that are a little obscure...movies, music, art. I am big on trying to protect our environment. We only have this one earth and we need to take care of it. I love good food and spirits. I'm a pescetarian,, or a vegetarian who still eats seafood. I love sushi...I'm a sucker for a good California roll. I am a firm believer in preventative health, and am not one to take medicine unless I really have to. I have a beautiful twelve year old daughter who I am very proud of and wonderful parents who have been good to me. I watch HGTV ALOT, and now my friends all want me to decorate their houses.
I typically spend my leisure time
Dining out, spending time with friends...engaged in a good conversation, traveling for leisure or volunteering.
The most influential person in my life has been
Tolerance and an open mind. I don't want anyone around me who is full of hatred, or someone who is not tolerant to other's opinions, views, beliefs, or sexual orientation.
The first thing people notice about me
I am soft-spoken and quiet, until I feel the urge not to be, but I am always quiet when I meet new people. I never talk to hear myself talk, and I'd say most people wonder what's going on inside my head. I'd be inclined to say, if more people had the inclination to ask.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Best Loved Poems of the American People, copyright 1936I prefer poems to novels, and this book of poetry is special to me because of not only how old it is, but because it was found in my late aunts house. She was a pack rat, and most of the books found in her home were things I wouldn't look at twice. This is a rare gem, filled with beautiful words from poets both famous and unknown.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I'm thankful for the daughter I am raising. She loves life, makes friends easily, and is o.k. with being herself.
- I am thankful for my parents, and for the kindness and love they have instilled in me.
- I am thankful that I was born with such an open mind.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am not a pushover. I may be sweet natured and a little quiet, but I'm not going to let anyone walk over me.
