The one thing I am passionate about...

Reading business, investment, travel, news, novels, and some other non-fiction books, magazines, and newspapers. Working on my computer. Taking long walks in the Metroparks or in my neighborhood. Taking long, interesting country rides and making discoveries. Engaging in long interesting conversations with interesting people.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty, Integrity, and ease and effectiveness of Communication. I seek to understand people and their feelings, objectives, and purpose in living. Not currently a subscribed member to eharmony, but might be someday, hence, I haven't been able to respond to matches.
The first thing people notice about me
Very easy to meet and converse with. I am very good at establishing rapport with people and getting into very meaningful conversations quickly, if desired.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Poisonwood Bible, set in Africa in 60's and interesting. Emotional Alchemy, interesting non-fiction book about how emotions affect our lives, and our ability to change lifelong patterns. Ohio Life insurance course and NASD Series 7 courses, as I prepare for a slight shift in career to Financial Advisor/Planner. I love reading interesting novels and non-fiction. I always want to learn more or see things or issues from a different perspective.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Excellent brain and analytical, thinking, and communication skills
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am very knowledgeable and caring about people, and have a great ability to understand people and what they are all about. Perhaps they do notice this, but not right away. Although I think I know a lot, I am not interested in dominating a conversation, and wish to continue to be a very good listener. I think I am very perceptive.
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Caring, Intelligent, Perceptive
A little more about me
I like foreign and independent movies, dining out at various levels, reading good books, fireplaces, outdoors, parks, interesting houses, neighborhoods, and charming (or just plain) small towns, museums (art, natural history), programs in the metroparks or at the museums, interesting television documentaries, and any type of interesting conversation revolving around all of this. Again, I wish to someday travel the entire world (wherever it is safe)several times, going to both the famous interesting places, and also, all of the out-of-the-way off-the-beaten-track places. This will take time/money, but I will get there with someone special.
