I like activities that push physical boundaries (all of them imaginary I've come to discover). I think between a rock and a hard place is where all important answers are found. Pushing physical boundaries can put you between a rock and a hard place, and so I find a lot of answers pushing physical boundaries. I love watching people and sometimes when engaged in conversation I find myself not hearing a word they're saying because I'm so preoccupied with something they're doing - something they're not saying. I love extremes - extremely sad, funny, romantic, hateful, hot, cold, bright, dark, wet, dry, etc. And I love bouncing back and forth between extremes. When life gets too monotonous I "photoshop" my world by traveling - distant or near. I have been known to forget what day it is while traveling. While traveling I have been known to forget what day it is I'm supposed to come home. I love children and animals - not always in that order.
