The one thing I am passionate about...
Fairness is something I am passionate about because it's on my endangered non-species list, which in turn leads me to recall my total frustration over the deplorable condition our planet is in because of knuckleheads.
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading, writing poetry and stories, watching movies, playing the piano (after not for 40 years), fixing something, listening to music, dancing, meditating, going to concerts, gardening, walking, making angels and snowmen, camping, swimming, looking for fossils, touring art galleries or events and museums, star gazing, riding bikes, making things (food/clothes/jewelry/etc.), and spending time with family and friends are all things I tend to do frequently and I wish wish wish I could ride horses more often.
The most influential person in my life has been
The first thing people notice about me
People quickly notice that I am easy going... AND I'M THINKING ABOUT RENEWING MY SUBSCRIPTION (it expired the 1st of July) AS A BIRTHDAY PRESENT TO MYSELF THE END OF SEPTEMBER... please be patient, OK???
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown is the last book that I have read and especially enjoyed not only because it was well written in the conventional sense (it hooks you quick), but because it was intellectually geared a few notches above the usual fictional work, and because I learned several things that interest me, such as a detailed description of the Louvre. I will not spoil the story for you. Read it. (Very dated response, haven't read another book a man would be especially interested in that hooked as solidly as the one above, but as far as movies, The Butterfly Effect, Wicker Park, Ray, and The Notebook (book was better)impressed me.)
The three things which I am most thankful for
- the love and friendship of those I hold close
- the physical, emotional and mental health of those I love and my own
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish people would somehow quickly perceive that I am a whole lot more than a nice smile on a bag of bones...
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Genuine, Good listener, Intelligent
A little more about me
Although my personality profile paints me as a bit of a mouse at times, in actuality I am thoughtful, diplomatic, and assertive when the occasion warrants. I possess a large variety of interests and talents, love to laugh, and am NEVER bored. Call me shallow if you must, but I am uninterested in becoming involved with someone that appears to be more than a little overweight.
