The one thing I am passionate about...
My children, my creations, my writing, my music, my family, my friends, my hobbies, my love of learning, my love of life. Passion, flirtation, debates, conversation, seeing new things and meeting new people. Showing people how much they mean to me, and sharing with them my life.
I typically spend my leisure time
Watching movies, reading books, writing poetry, playing with my kids, debating some innane topic with friends, participating in medieval reenactment.
The most influential person in my life has been
A spark, a hint of light and fire, a burning that yearns for the fuel that is my heart.
The first thing people notice about me
Usually my brain, and usually because of some smart-alec response.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I just finished reading "The Graveyard Book" by Neil Gaiman, a darkly humorous take on the Jungle Book. Neil is one of my absolute favorite authors, and he did not fail to meet my expectations here. I really love how his characters act and react, how they talk and respond to one another. His stories never fail to draw me in.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My children - regardless of my past marriage's problems, my kids are awesome!
- My creativity - I love having the ability to create, to inspire, and to share the way I see the world.
- My life. It has its ups and downs, but in general, its been a good one.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That my ridiculous optimism is honest, that my occasional cynicism is a sham, and that try as I may to be the brooding type, I'm really too ridiculously happy to make it last.
