The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate in my belief that the world is a much better place than the media generally shows it to be. Everywhere I go, I meet wonderful people doing incredible thing and although there's a lot that's going wrong, and needs solutions, there is just so much more that is going right.

The most influential person in my life has been
The most important quality that I am looking for is honesty. I want someone I can enjoy for himself, and who will enjoy me as I am for whom I am.
The first thing people notice about me
The first thing people notice about me is my smile. It is very big and very bright. You might say my smile is my trademark.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Michaelangelo's Ceiling. I've forgotten the name of the author, but it was fascinating, because I knew a few things about him, but this really goes into the period and his life in depth. It's full of surprises.For instance, Michaelangelo didn't paint the ceiling on his back. He stood, leaning back slightly as anyone would who was painting. I've got to admit though, that for a bedtime book, you can't beat Stephen King. He puts me to sleep every time.
