The one thing I am passionate about...
Beautiful sunrises and sunsets, birds taking flight, learning to paint, reading a beautiful poem, having the lightbulb go off from an enlightening experience, high waves crashing on the cliffs, watching a wild rabbit cross my path on an early morning walk, Yo Yo Ma's passionate cello playing, anything that anyone does with passion and heart, fresh strawberry pie, the clean smell of rain-soaked earth, sunrise sparkling on dewdrops, the moon reflecting on gentle wavelets in the harbor, the gentle lapping of small waves on the sides of ships in the middle of the night, warm snuggles, Life!
I typically spend my leisure time
Hiking in the hills or along the beach, vegetable gardening, reading, learning guitar, crafts and sewing, cooking, household repairs, listening to music, exploring the wonders of life.
The most influential person in my life has been
Compassion for others and passion for living. When you live life knowing it is short you spend less time watching TV and more attention to what is in your heart. You spend less time being entertained by others and more time making your life an adventure. Instead of killing time you try to make every moment count. And you appreciate life and love those around you! This is how I strive to live my life and hope my soulmate would, as well.
The first thing people notice about me
the smile, calm demeanor, and warm caring for others
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Now, Discover your Strengths" - about finding out more on yourself, what makes you and others "tick", help with career and management decisions. I liked its insights and suggestions on how to apply the info in work, management, and life in general.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- the freedom and self-assurance to shape my life
- Being able to give compassion and care to all I deal with
- the wonderful people in my life
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
no wishes - nothing hidden that I wish others would notice, at least once we start talking. I have a pretty free sense of humor and laugh a lot, I can find humor in just about anything! And I'm very compassionate and accepting of others.
Friends Describe me as
Generous, Genuine, Good listener, Intelligent
