I wish I could say that I am saving the world, but I am not. On the other hand I think I can say that I make a difference in people's lives both at work and at play.
I am lucky enough to get to travel, both domestically and internationally , as part of my job and try to also get away at least once a year to somewhere new.
My all time best trips include an 8 day safari as well as hiking Kilimanjaro. That said, am always happy to go to France or Italy just to enjoy the scenery and the food!
I like most movies but am not the biggest fan of blood and guts since I have to put my hands over my eyes.
Books-- like to read them and like to read a range of things. Read the Hunger Games series, the Dragon Tattoo series, read Suite Francaise, read Freedom by Jonathan Franzen, will read the new Stephanie Plum novel when it comes out, was into Steinbeck for a few months. Can't say I have a favorite book or favorite author, I just read what grabs me.
Can't say there is much else that I couldn't do without but would be sad not to have my garden, my favorite thrift stores and the vietnamese restaurant on the corner.
I guess I have to add my passport as if I don't leave the country at least once a year something is amiss.
Oh and yes, my friends and family are super important to me, but I think I already said that.
Lately I have been spending time thinking about milestones and how to make the most of every day. Watching my mother age has hit home and has made me more determined to take advantage of every day and every opportunity.
My thinking is if you are on this site you are looking for new friends-- so what does a cup of coffee really cost you? Maybe an hour of your time and a couple bucks.
