The one thing I am passionate about...
I am very passionate about people. I thouroughly enjoy speaking with new people and getting to genuinly know them. Its amazing how we each pretend in a certain way...when we honestly are all looking for the same thing...love, trust, and friendship. Other than that....I love art (Grecian and black and white photography), Music (Sinatra, Como, Dean, Ella, Otis Redding, Beethoven, Opera..everything but rap), Reading/Poetry (Sylvia Plath / Anne Sexton....or anything dealing with history or biographies), Cooking (Thai, Greek, French), Movies (suspense, comedy, thriller, romance, action), Fashion and Cars (anything from the 1940's and 1950's).
I typically spend my leisure time
Hmmm....lately in my fun time I have been fending off the cold temperatures with a good book (currently working on Judy Garland's biography) and a cup of tea. Other than that I enjoy watching a good movie with even better company. :)
The most influential person in my life has been
Passion. Many of us have lost that happiness that comes along with doing something we trully enjoy. Passion comes in many forms....but I try and always have it.
The first thing people notice about me
People usually notice specific things about me. Looks-wise its usually my height, my hair color, my smile and my eyes. Personality-wise it is usually my laugh, my sarcastic nature, wit, and ability to not only listen....but hear them.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am currently reading a biography on Judy Garland....but also reading The Roots of Desire (a book about the myth, meaning, and sexual power of red hair). Both very interesting reads....I find it hard to just read one book at a time.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family. Although far away, they are the ones that keep me grounded.
- My humor and ability to see the good in the curve-balls that life likes to throw.
- Everything that has come my way...whether good or bad.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That although I am nice and understanding this does not mean I am na�ve.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Good listener, Intelligent, Sweet
