Virescit Vulnere Virtus—Courage Grows Strong from the Wound
When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.~~Marcus Aurelius
When someone gives you rare insight into their life, do not repay that gesture by betraying their trust~~~Dodinsky
Hello and welcome to my profile. I know there are rumors about me and that's ok. I am no longer concerned with the rumors or with the people who spread those pesky rumors. People will say whatever they want, without thought, care or concern about the person they are talking about. And some people will willingly believe what they hear, it doesn't matter if it's true or not. These are the people I keep at arm's length. I am very fortunate to have some wonderful friends, friends who have taken the time to get to know me. They look out for me as I look out for them. I cherish each and every one of them. I trust my friends. (F.Y.I. If I tell you something in confidence, do not betray my trust. This means do not insinuate, joke, or even hint at what I have told you in the open room.)
I am a health nut, but a health nut who does indulge in my love of chocolate. Working out is a must for me, if I don't work out, I don't feel right. Spending time with family and friends is a must. I have hobbies but too many to list. My favorite way to unwind is to put in an old black and white movie (usually Sherlock Holmes with Basil Rathbone), grab a few snacks and enjoy the movie. My favorite way to spoil myself is to enjoy a spa day complete with a deep tissue massage.
I enjoy chat, I have made some wonderful friends here. I have become a bit more private about myself and my life lately. Let's just say I don't appreciate having something I told someone in confidence said in the open room. I'm more cautious who I open up to and I know who I can trust (and they know who they are ).
