I am a woman who loves life and people in general. "And that's all I have to say about that"....
I like the color purple; sunflowers; the ocean; of course MUSIC, always my root, what keeps me grounded, what brings me back., babies; soft scents; learning; teaching children; (not that I'm a teacher); art, above all, good art takes my breath away; I love more than life, my two sons, my men. I also love God, and the magnificence of his creation.
Favorite Songs: "Nothing Else Matters"-Metallica; "Cool Change"-Little River Band;
"Give Me One Reason"-Tracy Chapman; "Ravel's Bolero" - (pref. by Pink Martini); "Lavender" - Fish; "A Gentleman's Excuse Me"-
I enjoy reading a good book - have to be in the mood..... If it's a captivating book, then I devour it. I LOVE the ocean, going to a good movie, a night out or better yet, a night in, having a cozy dinner, cocktails and intelligent conversation.
CNN, BBC, MSNBC... I'm a news/politics aficionado.
The English Patient; Breakfast at Tiffany's; Casablanca; The Godfather series; The Green Mile; The Bourne Identity trilogy - (yes book was better - always is; still the movie is awesome); Good Will Hunting; Bitter Sugar; All James Bond movies; Anything with Morgan Freeman, Harrison Ford, Merril Streep ...sooo many more....I thought I was the only person who had never seen "Star Wars" - Never got into it....Yet I found out there's someone else out there who didn't "dig it" either-----Yes Robert---- that was unreal.... "Star Trek" - the series - on the other hand - That's a different story.....(no pun intended).....
John Grisham; Isabel Allende's "The House of Spirits"; Truman Capote's "Other Voices, Other Rooms"; Gabriel Garcia-Marquez; Robert Ludlum; Victor Hugo's "Les Miserables"; Anything by Guy de Maupassant - The classics: Hemingway, Poe, Steinbeck.... so many!!
Leo Buscaglia, Shirley McClaine (yes....her books rock!!!)
"To him she seemed so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else's heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter. He had not missed a single one of her gestures, not one of the indications of her character, but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell". Gabriel Garcia Marquez
