The one thing I am passionate about...
Love; friendship, romance and the general love of humanity and our universe. Our Universe; I enjoy exploring our beautiful universe in all ways. Hiking, fishing, camping, horseback riding and most any activity involving the outdoors interests me. Living (in the moment); spending an evening at home with a close friend talking and sharing time together is another form of paradise. Other passions/interests include Making people laugh, Music, Movies, Theater, Art, Biology, Geometry, Chemistry, Cooking, Lapidary and much more. I'll try anything twice!
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy listening to and dancing to music. Most of the time I dance in my own home listening to my MP3 collection. But i enjoy dancing with others and at parties etc. I love cooking. There's nothing I like better than trying a new recipe and shaping it to my, and my friends, tastes. I have created a large number of my own recipes over the years. Since I must narrow it down I will say my third is playing with , training, my horses and riding. I have rescued a few and tend to enjoy playing with troubled or problem horses. Gaining their trust and rehabilitating their human skills so to speak.
The most influential person in my life has been
I would have to say Honesty. My view of a lie is as a delay of the truth. that delay could last one minute to a lifetime. But whats the real point? any delay only sets you back. Once the truth catches up the small lead the lie gave will be overshadowed by the task of regaining others trust. Lying is alot more work in the long run.
The first thing people notice about me
Usually my sense of Humor. I tend to be generally silly. I find humor in all aspects of life. I have a good sense of the proper time and place for humor, and when and where it doesn't belong.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I tend to read for knowledge not recreation. That being said the last book I read was "men are from mars, women are from venus." At the recommendation of a good friend. It was somewhat insightful, but as any such book not fully able to capture the deeply complex nature of what it is to be in a relationship.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The chance to live my Dreams. and attempt to improve some aspect of our world
- My mother and supportive Friends.
- Art in all forms. I'm thankful to those who have shared their inner visions/feelings
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I would probably say when meeting new people I tend to be shy at first. In a way protecting myself. The initial shyness masks my true outgoing nature. I'm very sexual but people rarely see that side of me.
Friends Describe me as
