The one thing I am passionate about...
I am very passionate about the coaching and counseling aspects of my profession. In addition, I am looking forward to becoming a more active supporter of the arts and other worthy causes which inspire me. I am passionate about relationships with family and friends and enjoy continuing to grow and learn new things. Creating balance is important to me. As much as I can easily define my likes and dislikes, in order to keep perspective, it's important to move out of my comfort zone a bit. I plan to never stop learning and doing my little bit to make a difference.
I typically spend my leisure time
Friends, pets, nature, the arts, and rennovating my home.
The most influential person in my life has been
Strong belief in God and the perseverance to do their best to live their faith and keep priorities in line with those beliefs. This is a quality to which I consistently aspire, and speaks to the degree to which I think that integrity is such an essential quality in a partner...for love or friendship.
The first thing people notice about me
My eye contact, warmth and ability to put them at ease.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Food for Hope, by Jane Gooddall. She discussed the concepts of sustainable farming, vis a vis the current environmental crisis around the world, and the limited awareness most of us have about these pressing issues. What struck me most was her abundant knowledge about some pretty dire realities, yet she was very passionate and intent to educate others about how they can contribute by making even seemingly small changes. I also love history and anything by Barbara Tuchman. I've lately been on a WWII kick. Ghost Soldiers, by Hampton Sides, should be on every High School student's reading list. Just phenomenal in many ways;a tough one, but..Wow!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My relationship with God
- My health
- My family
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Still waters not only run deep, they have a powerful source; Passion isn't always the loudest voice in the room.
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Loyal, Optimistic, Warm
A little more about me
I'm very selective about whom I date, very intelligent,concerned about the world, but don't take myself too seriously. Still, only gentlemen need apply. Sense of humor is a must, and I want to have some fun. I don't know about all of this "Soul Mate" business, but why not try something new? You never know. Besides, I really love the Natalie Cole bumper music on those ads!
