The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about passion. It's still important to me to be not only connected to a special person, but intensely in love. It's elusive but worth going for. I also love my plants, music, the arts, my son, my friends.....
I typically spend my leisure time
I'm usually in the garden or on the computer. I'm surprised to find I've become a news junkie in my older years. Love movies, theater, live music, and would love a dance partner. I've taken a few lessons and would gladly take more.
The most influential person in my life has been
It would be very hard to select one quality. In truth, there must be many compatible qualities for a match. Tenderness, a willingness to communicate on a very intimate level, a spiritual foundation- are a few.
The first thing people notice about me
I would imagine it's my stature. Mighty midge here.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Under the Tuscan Sun- It's about food, remodeling a very old house, food, the history of Italy, good wine, food, nurturing a garden, olive trees, intimacy through food- Being a cook, and loving Italian food and a glass of wine, and valuing the bridges built through the breaking of bread, it was right up my alley.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Music that lights me up- I like many kinds and have learned alot about Latin and Jazz in recent
- Tomatoes growing in my garden and of course flowers. I'm the original flower child.
- The company of a friend almost anywhere I am. I'm a people person and all my goals are relation
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am a very emotionally strong person, not a fragile damsel.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Genuine, Good listener, Physically Fit
A little more about me
I am the mother of a disabled son who lives with me during the week. I have posted a picture of him taken about a year ago. He is a charming,bright, fun young man who just happens to have cerebral palsy. He is my first and best teacher. The only other thing I would add- sometimes a profile can list preferences or dislikes in a way that can seem like they are set in stone. Well, very often they are not. For the right person we are able to bend. Let's give each other a chance. We have only love to gain. Only love....
