The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about exercise and healthy living. I run, walk/hike and swim, among other activities. I spend time with my dad (my mom passed away in 2008), my brother and his family, and my friends. I love to explore new places and ideas. I enjoy reading, gardening, cooking, traveling and writing. I like to be outside in nature. I love the ocean. I'm living the life I didn't have time for while practicing law. What an adventure!
I typically spend my leisure time
I exercise; preferably outside, even in the winter. I read and garden. I get together with family and friends, whether for dinner or to visit bookstores, gardens, museums, or other places. I love the beach and take my dad to Cape Cod each year. I feed the outdoor animals (birds, squirrels, rabbits, etc.) and enjoy watching them. I make pickles and jams. I enjoy listening to music and, yes, watching TV...mostly news, mysteries, and nature programs. I like to travel to new locales, as well as familiar ones.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone who is intelligent, kind, optimistic, emotionally and financially stable, with a good sense of humor and a sense of adventure. Yes, this is more than one quality!
The first thing people notice about me
I think people notice my positive outlook and happy personality.
The last book I read and enjoyed
One of the most extraordinary books that I have ever read is My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor. It's about a brain scientist's experiences during and after a massive stroke. It gave me new insight into the nature of consciousness and what it means to be alive. The book is amazingly uplifting! I love to read mysteries, biographies and science fiction as well as books about spirituality, i.e. the nature of reality, consciousness, life after death, etc.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Good health
- Wonderful family and friends
- Financial stability
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Nothing comes to mind at the moment.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Happy, Intelligent, Optimistic
A little more about me
I think the above question: "Wants kids?" needs clarification! I don't want my own kids at this stage in my life, i.e., I'm not planning to adopt. That's why I said "No". However, I would welcome kids into my life. (I don't have children of my own, but the next best thing--a niece and nephew.) If my romantic partner were to have children at home, that would be fine with me.
