The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my work - healing and advocating for children, teaching and learning. I am passionate about travel, learning about the country I plan to visit and trying to experience as much of the culture as I can. Most of all, I am passionate about those for whom I care, trying to spend as much time with them as I can while still allowing time for myself.
I typically spend my leisure time
Walking, reading, cooking, entertaining, traveling, painting, going to movies, drinking coffee with friends.
The most influential person in my life has been
It's a melange of qualities - honesty, respect, dependability, curiosity, tenderness, ability to communicate... I can't pick just one.
The first thing people notice about me
I would guess they would notice a quiet intelligence and silly sense of humor. I'm generally shy but can become quit chatty if I'm comfortable and talking on a subject about which I am passionate.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"The time traveler's wife", so good that I read slowly so as to postpone finishing as long as possible.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Good health
- Opportunities I have been given in life - education, service to others, experiences, travel
- The love and support of my family and friends
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Caring, Dependable, Intelligent
A little more about me
I'm a professional, and while I don't consider myself an education snob, I am seeking someone who is also sucessful in their field. I would like a gentleman who is not intimdated by a woman who is well educated and sucessful in her profession. Also, if you have an accent (or can even fake it for a while - think "A Fish Called Wanda")... that's a bonus. :-)
