The one thing I am passionate about...
I have an addiction to movies and a passion for dancing. My musical taste are eclectic, but Soul and Rock are main stays- though my radio dial always seem to end up on NPR. I have a soft spot for My Prairie Home Companion. Garrison Keeler Rocks! Well something along those lines. ; ) I�m always up for a good debate, but please know I'm a born and raised New Yorker with "the" opinion to match. ; ) Not referring to our former governor(s).
I typically spend my leisure time
I have a really great group of friend so socializing on the weekends and being entertained is what I do mostly. With them there are Happy Hours, karaokes, board game nights, dinners, parties, or trips away. Alone time is usually watching movies, reading a book or listening to tunes curled up on the sofa. I used to do some volunteering for Habitat on Saturdays .But haven't in a long while. I covet my Saturdays now. ; ( But, basically, my life is good. It's just that walk to that car at the end of each evening as well as the cushy spot on the sofa that has become a bit colder somehow and in a word lonely. I don't like that word.
The most influential person in my life has been
Strength of character.
The first thing people notice about me
I don't know the answer to that question. The irony is the only thing I can think to say is how articulate I am. Go figure ; )- Okkkkkkk genuine and passionate are words I've heard often as well. FUN. Wow, three whole letters. Complimentary though. : )
The last book I read and enjoyed
Corrigedora. It was a book from one of my Lit. courses I discovered again. It's a piece of African -American Literature and its an intense often painful "love" story dealing with vicious cycles, slavery and need. I didn't enjoy it for those reasons but because of the conversations and people it brought to mind. What I liked most about it was that it reminded me of a time I was learning so much about the world and myself. College was a great time in my life. To borrow the much abused but appropriate term "it was a blast". What? It's better than saying AWESOME. ; )
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My Education
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am sharp and strong because I have had to be . I am am honest and kind because I want to be. I am a sensitive and empathetic creature because I was born to be. I am loyal and generous to those I befriend, but I only love a trusted few. Don't let the tough, bohemian, urban, rock chic, school marme facade fool you. I am a Lioness with a heart of gold searching for courage...
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I am working my way out of the BBW zone. It's for my empowerment not your viewing pleasure- but if you can kill two birds with one stone...lol ; ). No. I'm aware of my beauty and I plan to live for over a hundred years, so I'm just ensuring the plan. : )-
