The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about fairness. What bothers me the most is the homeless situation in the US. It is something that is often on my mind. It hardly seems fair that there are many children without homes, in poor health, and going hungry each day.
I typically spend my leisure time
There are so many things I like to do in my leisure time. I enjoy spending time outside. Gardening, golfing,reading, and walking in nature are relaxing pleasures. I love to attend summer outdoor concerts, Theater performances is something I enjoy very much. Oh, I really love to attend baseball games( Red Sox are my team) and UCONN basketball
The most influential person in my life has been
I think companionship would be very important to me. It would be great to have many of the same interests and enjoy just hanging out with each other.
The first thing people notice about me
That I am friendly, upbeat and happy.
The last book I read and enjoyed
My Sister's Keeper was a fabulous book. Each chapter is written from the viewpoint of a different character in the book. It is the story of a family with two children. The youngest child, a two yr. old girl, is diagnosed with an aggressive, rare form of leukemia. Unless she can find a family donor, she will die. The parents make a decision to have another child in the hopes that she will be the perfect donor match. She is. So whenever her sister is sick, she has to go to the hospital too and withstand painful procedures. At 13, she decides she wants to be medically emancipated. Thoughtful and profound with a surprise ending.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my family
- Being a healthy woman is something I am very thankful for
- I am also thankful for a core group of friends
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
One thing is that I am quiet, more of a listener, in a group of people. Yet when I am with one friend or colleague I am a better conversationalist.
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Kind, Outgoing, Spontaneous
A little more about me
My musical tastes are varied. I often listen to the Standards, (Perry Como, Michael Buble, Dean Martin...) and also enjoy Country, Classical, and Oldies. Television is not a huge influence in my life except for NESN, and HGTV.
