The one thing I am passionate about...
What am I most passionate about? Many things. I always look to be creative, finding new ways to do things. I become energized speaking with people when there is a real connection. I love seeing people get inspired, having breakthroughs, growing into their true self. I am very connected to nature. I have several dogs and they are precious to me. They keep me very connected to the most basic realities of what I consider to be life and love. When it comes to problems or issues, my mind naturally goes to problem solving and "designing" a solution. I am a designer and artist and this naturally plays a role in all aspects of my life.
I typically spend my leisure time
I am never bored or without an activity, though I can relax and be still. I prefer to be making, inventing, or doing something. I can work with many materials and tools and am always learning new processes. If I am not making something, I am playing or laying around with my dogs, listening to NPR, or... looking for someone to do go out for a great meal.. or photograph nature.....
The most influential person in my life has been
Authenticity. If they are real, then the relationship will be real. I want a rich, honest and alive connection.
The first thing people notice about me
My personality/mind. I have a quick wit, dry sense of humour, and love to have great conversations.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Jitterbug Perfume... It was quite a while ago, but I remember the joy I had reading it. Very detailed descriptions about luscious experiences, scent in particular, bathing, eating, making love, being with others, travel...It was exciting to the mind and the senses, as well as being funny, intelligent and absurd.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Being able to appreciate the very smallest aspects of life, as well as the largest.
- To have the ability and passion to experience cultures, nature, traditions; meet people from all lands.
- My mind, my heart and my dogs always keep me open, vulnerable, creative, entertained, alive, humoured...
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My intelligence. I have a very energetic and vibrant personality that it overshadows the more complex aspects of my mind.
Friends Describe me as
