The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm most passionate about the communication of ideas. I love to write, read, watch movies, listen to music, and experience art in all its forms. I have two novels in progress and my dream is to have time to finish them and sell them, so I can write more! I am also passionate about spiritual exploration and I want to spend more time with like-minded people. I would love to explore more of this vast, fascinating world in the company of another eager traveler, because life is precious and joyous and needs to be shared. I'd also like to give more time to social, political and environmental causes I believe in.
I typically spend my leisure time
writing, reading, walking my dog, shopping or going to the movies with my girls. I really miss camping, though...haven't done that in too long. I would love to do a lot more activities with the right partner, especially weekend trips, cooking together and trying to brush up on pathetic tennis skills.
The most influential person in my life has been
an honest and thoughtful approach to living; balance between fun and seriousness; an open heart
The first thing people notice about me
I smile a lot, try to find common ground and put them at ease
The last book I read and enjoyed
One of the Roman mysteries about "Gordianus the Finder" by Steven Saylor. I really enjoy reading novels set in other historical periods, especially with characters that the author develops over the course of a book series.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My two fantastic teenagers, radically different from each other and each wonderful in her own way
- My dad and grandmother, from whom I learned love, honesty, Yankee humor and the joy of books
- The small miracles of every day life, like moonrises and wind in the grass
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
my inner "fabulous babe"!
