The one thing I am passionate about...
At the moment - I'm most passionate about making my business venture a success. It has already allowed me time to enjoy lifes simple pleasures again...without the regular 8-5 work schedule. I'm not trying to climb corporate ladders anymore, and my kids are grown and happy on their own - so I'm really starting to "rediscover" myself. I have a great compassion for those in need, and would like to be able to make a difference somehow.
I typically spend my leisure time
I do alot of hiking - love being outside. I also enjoy getting together with friends, live music, going to a play, trying out a new restaurant, driving up the coast or into the desert...
The most influential person in my life has been
I have a tendency to be too serious at times - and have always been drawn to those with a quick wit and the ability to make me laugh.
The first thing people notice about me
I've been told that I appear self confident and assured...although many times it may not be how I'm feeling at all...
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Amber Spyglass...the 3rd book in the Dark Materials Trilogy by Phillip Pullman. They've already made a movie out of the first book; The Golden Compass. It's a fantasy epic - with alot of character development and adventure. Yes...I enjoy getting lost in these types of stories.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My children & family unquestionably.
- Lifelong friends that are extremely dear to me.
- My canine babies
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am much more comfortable as a "giver" than a "receiver". I like to be needed...but on the flip side, I enjoy having someone to lean on.
Friends Describe me as
Energetic, Generous, Hard Working, Kind
A little more about me
I believe chivalry and romance still exist. I'm looking for a man with these qualities, along with integrity, a kind heart AND a sense of humor. Important ingredients for me in a relationship? Honesty, intelligence, shared interests, teasing repartee, sense of adventure, commitment....and of course, some chemistry would be nice!
