The one thing I am passionate about...
Exploring the adventures I am having as I discover this part of the US. I'm a Southern girl,and am finding out that the so called "left coast" isn't so scary after all! I'ts great out here!! I have found that I am growing and changing everyday. I am passionate about finding a mate who can appreciate being with a woman of substance in all aspects of life. If you're looking for a marathon runner, I'm not her. If you'd like to train one, however, I've got my running shoes on! It's important to find a friend with an optimistic outlook- don't get too hung up on small stuff. Work is great, but if you're always doing it, when do you enjoy life??
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading anything from current fiction to medically-related topics. I also enjoy Major League Baseball, and am glad the Bonds hullabaloo is over... I really enjoy taking random rides to nowhere, just to see what's down the road. You never know what you might find..
The most influential person in my life has been
The ability to be true to yourself, and enjoy the fact that people's unique inner natures are what make this world so much fun. Be real! So many people have such false pretenses about who they are and what they do. When I first moved here, someone told me that the best way to get along was to lie- lie about your trainer, your gym membership, your vacation, your yoga level, etc. How sad is THAT? I really appreciate people who are confident in their character and have no sense of self-righteous entitlement.
The first thing people notice about me
My laugh. It's very hearty, genuine and apppropriate.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Mists of Avalon. One of my favorites, it depicts the Arthurian legend told from Morgaine's point of view. Beautifully written and about 800 pages!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My sons are grown and on good life paths. GO NAVY!!
- The opportunity to travel.
- Being content within my own skin.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm smarter than I let on.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Funny, Intelligent, Optimistic
A little more about me
This has been a wonderful transition from my Georgia roots to the California active lifestyle. I am heartily embracing the healthy ways of living, being, doing and learning, and would love to be involved with someone who can join and guide me down this wonderful path.
