The one thing I am passionate about...
I am very driven to be the best person I can be. This is enhanced by doing things that challenge me; writing, sports, fitness, learning, self exploration, helping others. Self improvement by participating in life and giving to others. To me that is a enriching circle and process.
I typically spend my leisure time
Taking my son to his sports and hobbies, caring for and riding our horse, going for long walks with dogs and without, low key bike rides. I love to run and do real yoga (not just power yoga). I love to go to the movies--and all sorts of movies, blockbusters to international films. I enjoy writing, singing, sketching and photography.
The most influential person in my life has been
It isn't just one thing, there are many that make the whole. Caring, compassion, empathy, integrity, courage, honesty, curiousity, humor, strength, tenderness, passion, drive...and more
The first thing people notice about me
I always receive comments about my energy--that it is positive and strong. People say they sense my warmth and how outgoing I am.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I last read a biography of Dorothy Parker. She was a fascinating women who made her life somewhat rough for herself. Her wit and sharp perceptions seemed to be a shield for her in so many ways. I always have about 3 or 4 books going at once.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My son. The gift of him is almost beyond description.
- My family and friends. Combined they make a FAMILY.
- My intelligence. It is the touchstone to everything I am and hope to be.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
This is difficult to answer...I think it would be my tender, mushy side. I'm outgoing and warm, so I hope they can sense what fuels those energies.
