The one thing I am passionate about...
I love meeting new people and talking, finding out their interests and ideas. I enjoy reading, art, music, nature walks, quiet times, and back yard barbeques with friends and family. I've led a very quiet life for the last 20 years and am interested in learning new things and having new experiences.
I typically spend my leisure time
Visiting with friends and family My kids are 17 and 19 so they are either gone, or I'm entertaining a houseful.of teenagers. Reading Listening to music, preferably live
The most influential person in my life has been
That he be respected by those who know him best.Intelligent, articulate, affectionate.That he be able to express his concerns and not jump to conclusions or shut down.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm genuinely interested in knowing more about them. I'm intelligent and have a good sense of humor. I'm also very affectionate. If you have a bubble around you and don't like to be touched, I'm not for you.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Quoteable Woman. I love the idea that universal truths can be boiled down to a pithy phrase.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I was fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom, raising my children before their father passed away.
- I have friends and family I can truely count on who appreciate me.
- The little things in life make me happy.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Although I'm very middle of the road in most of my choices, I have an understanding and appreciation for a wide variety of people. I prefer to follow a strong lead, but I can take charge if I have to. I'm not as lady-like and delicate as I seem.
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Funny, Good listener, Warm
A little more about me
I was widowed last year after 20+ years. So that's a big change, but it's a new year, a new decade, and a whole new world. I do feel ready to meet new people. I'm very open and honest, and a smart cookie too so the whole bar scene gives me the willies. So here I am... we'll see how it goes. It'll be an interesting experience if nothing else!
