And that’s just how your friends describe you: kind, generous, and thoughtful, someone they can count on. They respect your integrity and your commitment to personal growth.
They also say that you have a good sense of humor and a great smile!
My friends use similar words to describe me. More and more, I feel deeply content with, so grateful for simple things: time with friends, a dinner with my adult son (when his band isn’t touring), a walk on a beautiful day. I love the community of people at my church, at my gym. These are the connections that matter most; they help keep me physically fit and spiritually recharged.
I’m also curious. I love to learn—through a travel adventure every year or two (at Machu Picchu, dizzy with the beauty and grandeur of the mountains, dancing Argentine tango in Istanbul…) or a Stanford Continuing Studies class such as:
• History of the Blues (Big Mama Thornton, belting out “You Ain’t Nothin’ But A Hound Dog” on a Saturday afternoon? What’s not to like?)
• The Science of the Compassionate Mind, or
• Baseball 101. (I was wild about this class and I’m not even a sports fan.)
I was, perhaps, the only one to read every word of a history (800 pages+) assigned to participants for a Stanford trip to India. Couldn’t help it--I was fascinated. Many happy hours of Internet research also preceded energy upgrades on my cute new (old) house.
In addition to our different interests (the spice of life), I hope you and I can share a common passion. Movies or plays or books? Something that I have yet to experience, or even imagine? Something you introduce me to?
The idea intrigues me…
