The one thing I am passionate about...
"Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk." Chinese proverb. I believe it is important to be wholeheartedly involved in whatever I choose to undertake - work, friends, hobbies, and to remain balanced in the involvement. Commitment, focus, discipline are essential, but not to the point where the activity is no longer fun or creative. I'm all about living life with humor and heart.

Relaxing through reading, listening to music, watching movies, taking a drive to enjoy the scenary, visiting with friends. I like to take hiking trips.

A spirit of generosity, which means keeping things in perspective, being able to maintain a sense of humor, and ideally, always being kind.
