The one thing I am passionate about...
I like to create, whether it's at work or in my home or out for the night or on the road. I'm spontaneous and want the freedom to choose... everyday. I love people, relationships, talking, romance, touching, music, dancing, live theatre, art, humor, laughter, nature, beauty, peace, spontaneity, adventure, diversity and change. That's what I'm really passionate about. After that I love to have A LOT of fun!
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to do many things in my leisure time but being in beautiful inspiring places is toward the top of the list. And I love getting there...roadtrips are really fun. I love outdoor activities such as skiiing, snowshoeing, hiking, camping and canoeing when I can. I love to go out with friends for a drink or dancing or some special activity - usually involving music. Inside at home I like to cuddle up on my couch with my kids or a book.
The most influential person in my life has been
People are not who they are for one quality so I look at the whole person. Open mindedness, tolerance, compassion, a reasonably positive outlook with a dose of humor and a passion for life in whatever form that takes are attractive attributes.
The first thing people notice about me
I think people notice that I am friendly and easy to talk to.
The last book I read and enjoyed
War of the Copper Kings. It's non-fiction about the development of the mining and smelting industry in Butte and Anaconda Montana and the men that made it happen. It happens to be relevant to my current work and helps me to understand the people I work with better.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My two children have been very healthy. They are growing up to be compassionate, responsible people, full of energy and excitement for the future.
- I have learned to appreciate change through my life - even in the face of adversity. I can be resilient without bitterness or guilt.
- I have many caring friends and family members.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
People may not notice right away that I look for the best in others and tend to look further than the obvious.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Funny, Genuine, Spontaneous
