My humor is a little bit of the macbre/sarcastic, but never intentially hurtful. Since childhood I watched my mother laugh at herself and others. If you fell, stubbed your toe or fell in a mud hole after stubbing your toe, she would be in stiches. She always had a quick wit, (which I inherited) and a tender heart for those who needed it. (me to) Death took her away from me,but there are many times I can hear her voice, or notice a reaction to something that came from her first. I am an accomplished pianist, vocalist and composer. Though I am no longer interested in the pursuit of world recognition for my God given talent, I do enjoy listening to others. I am an avid kitchen chef and baker. Food in the house always gives me a reason to invite those I love and hold in high regard, to come and let us break bread together. I do not like to be around people of negative nature or of a pessemistic attitude. Those type of individuals bring out the worst in me (be it on the net-or in person) I avoid these kinds of persons at all times, period! By nature I am an optimist. (no I'm not delusional) Things in my past at times were very very tough! But I was raised to believe that, "these things too shall pass." I am aware that sometimes you have to go through some tough stuff. (life's great quest) Thanks be to God I'm still here! I watched a lot of people that I have loved be taken away tragically. I still have a lot of question as to the why? And the beat goes on.
