Fascinating Individuals

I love people, most of the time... at least from a safe distance. 

No man really knows about other human beings. The best he can do is to suppose that they are like himself.
— John Steinbeck

I like learning about people's lives, what they love, what makes them tick, why they get out of bed in the morning, their political, social, and religious views, why they did or didn't go to college, their hidden talents, and their hopes and dreams for the future. 

The Fascinating Individuals blog will be profiles for people I meet and find interesting. 

I am currently in the interview stage of my first profile. My first subject has recently become a sort of high profile person in my community, but I knew him before and have been dying to tell his story. I was asked to write a piece in a friend's new magazine, and since I had already planned to start this blog, I asked if I could do the same for his publication. 

I'm so excited about the opportunity to meet interesting people and introduce the world to them.
