The one thing I am passionate about...
Making a genuine difference in the world, in people's lives- particularly those who are close to me, and even not in my life. Kindness, humor, creativity, social justice, healthy nutrition and physical activity are critical to me-- including love and kindness to those in need, such as animals.
I typically spend my leisure time
Swimming, biking, dancing (i.e, I am quite a salsera! ;-) Reading, writing, watching interesting movies-- especially with some historical value, even if such biographies. Doing crafts or garden projects, as I am artistically-oriented. I particularly like snuggling with my loved one--- and my cats.
The most influential person in my life has been
Genuine connection and companionship. I'd love to finally find someone I'd like to grow elder with-- I refuse to just "grow older", OK?! ;-)
The first thing people notice about me
My smile and my amicable energy. As I have grown, I seem to have more and more "people appeal"-- and yes, including sex appeal-- I think that is more about my energy than my looks.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I enjoy reading, but have rarely have the time to read a full book from front to end. I recently enjoyed "Spiral Dynamics Integral" by Don Beck, Ph.D....a book on tape that I could listen completely as I found it very inspirational for my ongoing calling to support social transformation efforts.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The deep and genuine friendships I've been blessed with.
- The varied and meaningful experiences life has granted me.
- The resilience and creativity in dealing with life's problems I've been able to develop
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Being friendly or kind, or more specifically... not being inclined to "punch back" when pushed does not mean I am dumb.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Generous, Genuine, Perceptive
