My self-summary
I enjoy traveling, and meeting new people. I believe life is a precious gift, and should be treated as such. My tastes are diverse, and enjoy good conversation. Being healthy is a key part of my life, and enjoy walking and hiking activities. I try not to take life seriously all the time, and like to laugh at things when they don't work out. I'm easy going, and try to have friends that can be counted on.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been in the education field for most of my life. Once I retire in a couple of years, I would like to write children's books. Prior to my education career, I was in the International Marketing field. I enjoy writing, and organize and have a poetry club for kids.
I’m really good at
writing prose and storytelling.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look much younger than my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy Pablo Neruda, and other Latin American writers. Enjoy reading Garcia Marquez (100 years of Solitude, etc. ) and Vargas Llosa novels. Paolo Coelho is one of my favorite authors;Enjoyed reading John Steinbeck's works, and other great American authors. . . also Stephen King's keen insight into the dark things of life; Gilbran's The Prophet,. Lately I've begun enjoying mystery novels. Daniel Silva is my favorite.Loved the Godfather movies; also enjoy seeing movies from other countries. I'm also a musician of sorts (percussion), and like to accompany music with my instruments when I have a chance. I enjoy all types of music (it depends on the environment). My favorite meal is red snapper, with fried plantains, and salad . I enjoy cooking, and like to experiment with new recipes.Enjoy going to visit museums in the Fall and Winter.
Six things I could never do without
The love of my children
Good health
Spiritual health
Books to read
music and art
espresso in the morning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to seduce time.
On a typical Friday night I am
enjoying myself in some way. . . whether with my son, or with friends. I also play percussion instruments, and use my basement to practice. Sometimes, the great movies available take my time. I guess... it all depends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
nothing right now.
You should message me if
you find enough interest to want to know more about me, and share about you.
The two of us
