The one thing I am passionate about...
My family, my daughter and son, and a granddaughter. I love to travel and explore new places and meet new people. It's exciting finding out what's over the next hill or around the next corner! I love to hike and spend time outside. I enjoy swimming, biking and walking. I'm passionate about nature and learning as much as I can about the environment. Friends are very important in my life. I love listening to music - soft rock and some country. Keeping a balance in my life is important.
I typically spend my leisure time
Going for a hike, drive and/or walk, preferably somewhere I haven't been before, where the temperature is moderate (70 to 80 degrees) and exploring. I just love to explore -- it can be in the mountains, at the beach, or even in the city. I just love to see and experience new things, and try to incorporate exploring into my leisure time as much as possible. I also try to incorporate nature into my life as much as I can. The water has a very big influence on me, whether it's the ocean, lakes or rivers. I absolutely love the water. Photography - flowers, scenery and various wildlife that I encounter. And, of course, time with family! Golf.
The most influential person in my life has been
Passion for life ... a sense of adventure tempered with an appreciation for the simple things. Light-hearted with the capacity to love people -- children, grandchildren, and friends! Enjoys animals and nature. Kind, caring, optimistic and compassionate, easy to talk to! Wow -- quite a list. Also, and very important, someone who believes in God and appreciates what we have.
