The one thing I am passionate about...
Feeling alive, having the ability and smarts to appreciate what I have and what I have accomplished. Mother nature is a "biggy" for me, be it the flowers in my yard or America's beautiful lanscapes (I love traveling). I do get upset when so called "big" people take advantage of the meek. I used to be afraid of my shadow so I have much empathy for those who cannot defend or stand up for themselves.
I typically spend my leisure time
I am retired so I have a basket full of leisure time. Walking (I live near rhe ocean), working in my yard work, taking care of my house, like museums, architecture, love old cars (I drive on), car camping, enjoy traveling. WDC is my favorite city, if I had more guts I would move there ? so much to see and do, the entire east coast interests me, but lets be honest, there is nothing like southern CA weather.
The most influential person in my life has been
Compatibiliy, companionship, the ability to care and share, and to be able to speak freely. In short, to be in a situation where the two of us can enjoy, in good health, the rest of life's parade hopefuly down an adventureous path.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm bubbly, in good condition, and happy.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Mark Twain, The Guilded Age. The similarities of then and now, in government and human nature, are so similar it is rather cheeky of us to think we are so special.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I have good health, physically fit, and energetic
- I have a happy personality, my cup is full and I love it
- I am able to enjoy what life offers (love mother nature)
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
If I don't know the people then I don't care what they notice about me. The opinion of my friends and acquantainces are what is important to me.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Energetic, Happy, Physically Fit
A little more about me
The questions about my relationships with my parents are of no use, I never lived with them, I grew up in other peoples homes. One reason why I have a such a domestic streak ? home and hearth, nothing like it.
