I live for the thrills and chills from first time experiences, not limited to jumping out of planes, eating exotic food, racing down powdered slopes, sneaking into closed pools, or battling a marathon (some day). While I yearn for those euphoric highs I also enjoy those simple moments of content in taking half an hour to get out of bed in the morning, reading a book, discovering an amazing song, preparing dinner, slipping out for a late night run, and watching the sun poke its way through the horizon.
People who know me well would say I'm easy to talk to, have my own brand of humour (in a good way, I hope), take the time to listen, am thoughtful and compassionate. I value friendship of those who aren't quick to judge others. Thanks to London's wise words, I now try to say "Thank you" without opening my mouth and proving it by responding in kind - substituting the deed for the word, the spirit for the letter.
