The one thing I am passionate about...
Sustainable, self-sufficient and green living. I am currently focused on building a house this Spring that will be 100% off the grid (solar panels, rain harvesting, etc.) in Nogal, a small mountain community just outside of Ruidoso, NM.
I typically spend my leisure time
Enjoying nature, walking, hiking, reconnecting with family across the country, watching movies, listening to music, reading, and traveling (taking in cultural activities, food, art, museums/aquariums & natural attractions).
The most influential person in my life has been
Caring & Loyal
The first thing people notice about me
My frequent smile and laughs yet "laid back" quiet shyness.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"April 4, 1968" by Michael Eric Dyson about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his death and how it changed America was the latest book I read which was very interesting and important to me to be exposed to perspectives about the Man, and the movement of past, present & future.I read "Water for Elephants" a novel by Sara Gruen before that. Novels about people and their take on life and the world are more enjoyable and reflective on what I normally read.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Well-being of my family and close friends.
- Healthy, simple, quiet and happy lifestyle.
- Being productive for a better world (through work & community activities).
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
People notice either my easy going, introverted & sensitive side or my serious & "down to business" tough side depending on the situation. Once people really get to know me, they see the full spectrum of my personality. I assume this is the same for most folks.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Generous, Hard Working, Kind
