A few more random things... I can be in a roomful of friends thoroughly enjoying the conversation and company, but I'll still appreciate the space in between topics and embrace the silence. I would rather pick flowers than fights. I enjoy hiking - it rouses the senses... ...feeling the hot sun, as the gentle breeze rustles through the leaves and cool my skin… while I vigorously swat at horse flies and mosquitoes... Senses are heightened as the fantasy of being in a jacuzzi with a cold drink in hand hold my thoughts captive.
When life hands me lemons, I pucker up for a few minutes. After I'm done, I shake it off, then start looking for the roses. They're always there, it's just a matter of looking in the right places - with the right rose-colored glasses.
I enjoy cooking and trying out new recipes, but I tend to rely on a few favorites when I'm pressed for time. It would be nice to have a culinary co-conspirator. You don't have to know how to cook... just be willing to conspire over carrots together.
