Experiencing the beauty in people I meet gives my heart great joy. There is beauty in intelligence, kindness, patience, talent and peace. I am ameliorated by my association with people who exemplify these virtues. I try never to be judgmental; always keeping an open mind to innovative ideas while seeking an opportunity for personal enrichment. Although it's been quite a circuitous journey, I've come to love the world through my passion. I've discovered an ineffable joy when I live this way. The collusion of the heart and mind in my apprehension of the world and people around me has made me a better man. And my gratitude is limitless.
