I like people. I like to connect. Whether it’s a heart to heart or the lightness of Facebook, connecting is good. I like to inspire and be inspired. Really, what’s life about if we’re not inspired. I like change. I could never figure out why people resist change.
I’m not good at routine. I feel suffocated if the routine goes on for too long.
I love books, and sometimes I read them. But I really like owning them.
I love risks and I love people who take risks. I love to watch my friends growing and changing and following their dreams. I like doing those things too.
I’m very introspective. Too much so maybe. But I’ll try not to think about that for too long.
I’m a spiritual person. My roots are in Christianity and I honour and appreciate those roots but my thoughts these days are broader than that and I believe truth can be found in many different places. I’m always exploring spiritual things. I can’t help it. It’s a part of me. Most of what I read is theology or spirituality or biographies. I try very hard to like fiction.
I’m a foodie. Love to cook. Hate to cook when I have to, love to cook for fun, so most of the cooking happens on the weekends and is a joint effort, always with a glass of wine in hand. Love to talk about philosophies around food…vegetarian, health, nutrition, slow food, organic, sustainable farming, etc
I love music. Particularly I love live music. I’m amazed at the talented friends I have. I never feel wealthier than when I’m listening to live music. I love art and writing in the same way. Love the way a painting or photograph can take your thoughts in a certain direction and lift your spirits, or the way the turn of a phrase can roll around in my head like wine swirling over the tongue. Intoxicating.
I love when the arts and the entrepreneurial spirit collide. Sheer beauty.
Oh!!! By “about me” did you mean….?
I am a wife and a mother of 3 gorgeous girls. Before leaving Canada I was a Realtor for 7 years but I have also been employed as a Minister, a Business Analyst, a Horticulture Technician, a Landscaper and a waitress as well. What I’ll do next…well, that’s what this blog will track. You’re welcome to come along for the ride.
