The one thing I am passionate about...
I am probably the most passionate about my faith as it relates to helping those that are not as fortunate as myself. I have spent a lot of time helping people with problems, fears, and addictions. I currently work with people with disabilities to give them a voice and help make systemic change in society.
I typically spend my leisure time
That depends on where I am and whom I am with. I will assume that I am alone and it is summer...well, I might be fishing, walking to a secluded spot, enjoying a museum, or looking for ancient artifacts. I might even be gardening or doing some home project - they can be fun.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone who is considerate of others and me of course. Someone who tries to understand why someone is the way they are or a situation is the way it is and respect this - this keeps judgement from happening and all of the consequences that often follow.
The first thing people notice about me
My smile : ) ...OK, nonappearance...I think it is that I seem to be at peace. People are comfortable with me and often really open up.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book...A Man Sent From God. It is the life story of William Brahnam. He lived an extroidinary life. He was controversial and many miracles were acredited to him. A king in England of MS and A US Senator was able to walk after being paralyzed for many years. Had a famous picture taking of him which was authenticated by the FBI and appeared in scientific journals of a halo of light that often appeared over him. He often saw angles. It appears he got a little off in his theology in later years and Kenneth Hagin, SR tried to straighten him out - anyway, God took him home. I liked his humanity despite all that was done through him
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Love - Conquers all.
- Peace - Key to health and contentment.
- Joy - It is my strenght.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That if I am quiet, it is often not because I am shy, sad, upset, upity, rude, etc. It is usually because I am content - I am listening.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I am complex yet simple. I have lived as a minority and a majority, lived in big cities and small towns, rich and poor, only child and one with siblings, have travelled the world, can talk to almost anyone about any subject from any socio-economic group and have. I enjoy fine things, material things, good food, etc. Yet, I am most content and happiest with simple things, quiet times, etc. I am ready to settle down and have a family.
