Some things I'm serious about such as respect & tolerance. I really enjoy people's differences. So much to share, learn, and grow! I can't stand people who are judgmental or racist. That also means I want to be valued for who I am. You can ask me any question but do not tell me what to do.
I'm not a black & white thinker; I see thoughts, feelings, values, actions on a continuum. Having compassion and understanding for people's own path is vitally important for me.
I like the outdoors and I hike pretty regularly. The mountains, the fresh air...
I love to travel and see other cultures. I've spent about half my life in Europe and it's certainly expanded my horizons. There is something about living in another country that questions one to the core. What is valued in one culture is not in another. So it has put me in a position of reexamining myself and finding out where I am, who I am.
