Nowadays, I like to keep my mind open to different opportunities and experiences. Traveling and meeting new friends are a top priority. I enjoy having conversations with people, getting to know what's important to them really can show their character...like the saying "the eyes are the windows to the soul"....I believe there's something to that.
I'm down-to earth and I think my friends/family appreciate that in me. I'm dependable and the go-to person when you need advice or just a friendly ear. Loyalty and respect are important traits to me, so I hold those things paramount in all my relationships.
Singing/dancing, it's what makes me happy and keeps me young. I think music is the great equalizer among people. I enjoy performing for others, and learning new songs is always exciting to me.
I'm a great conversationalist, and put people at ease right away. My communication/observation skills have served me well in every job that I've ever undertaken. The power of words/speech can be very commanding, thoughtful, funny....even romantic!
I'm told green eyes are the rarest color (thanks Dad!) and there's just a splash of brown for contrast (thanks Mom!) Nice chemistry, huh?
and..........my winning smile!
My friends say I "light up the room" when I enter. Thanks Crest/Colgate....no cavities either!
And, Jane Austen...fascinated with that time period: great clothes, people spoke eloquently, and manners were in style!
MOVIES: How much time do you have? Let's see, to name just a few: Planes, Trains, Automobiles (anything with John Candy...what a teddy bear!) Cohen Bros. classics like "Raising Arizona", Godfather I and II, Outlaw Josey Wales, Titanic, Stand By Me, Dances With Wolves, Gone With The Wind, To Kill A Mockingbird, Tootsie, Arthur, Gladiator, the list goes on......
SHOWS: Law and Order (Original and SVU...NOT Criminal Intent), Food Network shows w/Giada or Bobby Flay, also Chopped, and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, re-runs of Two and a Half Men
MUSIC: Pretty much every genre: country, classic /alternative rock, blues, jazz, standards (really enjoy going to live performances!!)
FOOD: Enjoy a variety of foods, usually chicken dishes, but I love a great steak too! Have to have some type of potato too....it's in the blood....IRISH!
FAMILY-keeps me grounded!
FRIENDS-my lifeline/sounding board!
BOOKS-fuel my imagination!
TRAVEL-opens new possibilities!
NATURE-inspires me to be better!
