The one thing I am passionate about...
Life, travel, art, and happily sharing all of it during the best years of life - those to come- with my soul-mate. I look forward to someday being a grandmother (but I'm not there yet), at that time in my life I'm sure I'll be a total "dote", and I'd hope my guy is the type to find that as endearing and engaging as I find him. I guess what I'm trying to say is, "finding that right person to spend the best years of my life with my soul-mate. My motto is, You have a right to be happy, AND you're not old until you're 80something. So many people start thinking they're "old" not long after they pass 40, so if you're that way-PASS
I typically spend my leisure time
My leisure time usually consists of Sunday afternoons, which I like to spend visiting culteral events or locales, for instance the Orchid exhibit at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens was gorgeous this year, and I managed to make a sketch of some blooms. I like to to lots of things, this is only one example of something I did alone. Couples things might be more along the lines of attending a performance at the symphony, or canoeing around in Allatoona, or the Chattahoochee, a nature walk with a great digital camera who knows... the options are limitless with common interests.
The most influential person in my life has been
The one most important quality that I am looking for in another person is loyalty.
The first thing people notice about me
A confident self-assured demeanor.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Describe the last book that I read? Well, ok... but I tend to read for information, not particularly entertainment. If I did read a book for entertainment I'm sure it would be about either romance, corporate politics, mergers and acquisitions, or gov't politics. I work on a computer 8 - 10 hours a day, by the time I have any time left over for reading my eyes have usually had about all they can take.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- #2: I am thankful for the happiness experienced while I was rearing my daughter (now 23).
- #3: I am thankful for my blessings which include my health, vitality, a good job, and a peaceful home.
- #1: I am thankful for each breath God allows me to take, and that he forgives.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm an "old soul" - - there is a lifetime of experiences, a brain, and a good heart behind my the pretty face. Rather than assuming that I've lead an easy sheltered life, I would prefer they'd realize that it's been a process of development to become who I am. But hey, how much can you discern from a face?
