The one thing I am passionate about...
Learning, exploring, figuring things out. Either by singing, arranging, listening to music; talking or reading about politics or life's meaning; going to museums, nature stuff, the zoo; playing; finding out new things on my own.
I typically spend my leisure time
Listening to, singing, or arranging music. Don't laugh, I particularly like Barbershop Quartet singing. :) Diddling on the computer, I got addicted to iTunes recently. Working out. Hanging out with family or friends. Movies.
The most influential person in my life has been
Intelligence. Or better said, a desire to explore and learn. Not that they have to be super smart, but curious, hungry to know new stuff and think new thoughts. Someone that likes to talk about or go places and learn about interesting things.
The first thing people notice about me
That I'm generally outgoing, friendly, helpful, inclusive, sincerely curious about them and their situation.
The last book I read and enjoyed
A philosophy textbook. It made me realize I don't know squat about philosophy.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Being who I am, living in this time and place.
- The environment in which I was raised.
- Musical expression.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I really AM generally outgoing, friendly, etc... I'm very upfront and honest (what you see is what you get) but people are used to an intitial facade and THEN getting to know the real person.
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Genuine, Intelligent, Rational
A little more about me
I'm an Apple fan, play tennis when I can, I don't own a TV (waste enough time on this computer), direct a men's community chorus, sing professionally around town a little, try to be healthy but I'm sure I don't work out or eat right as much as I should, vote Libertarian. I'm a fantastic kisser. I have a stream in my backyard! My pictures are of me (go figure): with my super computer, getting buff ;) and singing with friends.
