The one thing I am passionate about...
My job (helping others) and attempting to be good at it- it is an art, ya know..., my dogs, friendships, and our environment. I have interests, opinions, and feelings about many things and am always wanting to learn and grow.
I typically spend my leisure time
Traveling the world (lived in Africa for 1 1/2 yrs), reading, writing, photography, skiing, hiking, exercising, walking the dogs (3-5 mi/day), shopping, and hanging out w/ friends. I watch TV (informational and some brainless), play the piano, cook, quilt, meditate, attend cultural events (prefer local- especially Appalacia music and art). I love history and learning so if it "expands the mind", I probably enjoy it.
The most influential person in my life has been
"Humility"- including intelligence, life experience, kindness, being goal-oriented, authenticity (are true to themselves and others), sense of humor!! (get my humor and sarcasm), strength of character, and simple, non-judgmental faith in God.
The first thing people notice about me
My kindness and openness??
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm currently reading a Consumer's Guide to effective environmental choices book (comparative analysis). It's designed to cut the confusion of making helpful environmental decisions w/o totally changing your lifestyle and/or having guilt about certain things.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My best friend of 12 years- who grounds me.
- The life experiences that have formed who I am today.
- The opportunities and gifts I've been allotted in life, including family and God.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Friends Describe me as
Generous, Genuine, Hard Working, Intelligent
A little more about me
I'm just ready to find a guy that challenges and excites me and whose personality and chemistry "clicks" w/ mine. I guess the one that God has specially "designed" just for me.I'll send more pics later...
