i'm a man who now enjoys life without the need for things like alcohol, cigarettes or drugs. meaning i am a man of sober habits. as an artist i am captivated by beauty. seeing a dazzling sunrise or sunset in all it's glorious colour, watching a doentary about wildlife, especially the big cats like leopards and tigers, a beautiful garden, i find good for the soul. too many people in my society have lost the ability to appreciate beauty. i like to read, especially philosophy, as it breaks down the walls that seperate religious and ethnic groups and get to the true meaning of life, that being that most of us simply want a peaceful and happy existence. as i'm getting older now i focus on simply making my soul stronger by enjoying the simple things. to repeat reading and taking in the visual splendour of life. i am not a wealthy man but my novel that i am writing i believe is a good story and will be published. i also have other doors open to me to improve my wealth. i'm saying this because if i find the right lady i will make sure that we meet up and spend the rest of our lives together.
