The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about beauty in all things...people, my family, nature, music, art. I also get excited about the many ways we are all interconnected. I value communication and understanding, tolerance, and respect. I see these as the major building blocks for personal joy, a functional society and a peaceful planet.
I typically spend my leisure time
I don't have too much right now, as I'm in school and working full time but in general, I love to sing, spend time with my grown kids, write, read, work out, walk, bike, and get out into nature, travel...and go to the beach!
The most influential person in my life has been
Traits that are important to me are honesty, integrity, an open heart and optimistic outlook. I'm inspired by anyone who loves life, appreciats the beauty in others and in everything around us. I really enjoy a great sense of humor and appreciate someone who makes it a point to do what they love(in work, play, etc).
The first thing people notice about me
I'm told that I come across as very friendly, caring, and calm.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The 5 People you Meet in Heaven is one of the last that I enjoyed. I liked the concept that we never quite know the impact we have on others and the concept of synchronicity . Lovely Bones and Secret Life of Bees are two novels I also enjoyed.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My children are my greatest blessing. Four amazing young adults who respect and love me. I'm proud of who they are in the world.
- My body, mind, and spirit. I am grateful to be who I am and continue to try to be more each day.
- Life is such a gift! Nature, music, ocean, family, food, art. I'm grateful for it all!
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I think it's not so noticeable that I'd love to share my life with someone. I'm pretty independent and happy, so I may not have that "available" look about me.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I didn't choose religion categories, because I am interested in all faiths. Although mine is a primarily Christian path, I believe God has infinite ways to reveal him/her/it Self to us and I respect them all. I'm also NOT looking for someone just like me, that would be really boring I think! Same values, yes, but not a "perfect match".
