    At the core

    What is it that your life revolves around at the moment? What's at your core that the rest of your life is spinning around? Include family and religion if that is part or all of it but also include anything which really has meaning in your life. It could be anything that you are consumed with or fascinated by - something that you can't get enough of. I don't mean work as we all do that unless your work really is something that you can't get enough of.

    For me, I can honestly say that I don't have a lot going in my life or anything driving me personally. I do have my family which of course I love and I want the best for. I don't have religion. It seems that others might have some real meaningful things keeping them going. Those who live for something like Harley Davidson motorcycles, Jesus, reading, travel or some sport make me jealous. I just don't have that kind of interest in me for anything in particular.

    Just curious, what is the big thing in your life? What do you live for?

    I'm a minimalist. I try to marginalize everything and convince myself nothing is too important or worth getting passionate about or inflamed over. I'm the 1970s hippie without the VW van, or killer weed or long hair and tye-dyed shirt. I'm trying hard to become perfectly transparent and only wish that when I die, nobody will notice.

    My kids in a nutshell! and >

    Ever since I young (and which is my personal addiction) to create something new and not be tied down to a mundane job and everyday existance.

    Been very fortunate or calculating (whichever way one could look at it) and that is to position myself in jobs that allow me to try different things and hopefully be successful. Up until today I have been relatively successful but never know what tomorrow will bring.

    If I fail I would get right back up on my feet and do it all over again!

    Cheers mate. That's the traditional/national dress of New Zealand you culturally insensitive bastard!

    And by the way it's not child abuse to force them to wear it if they can't voice any complaints.

    Problem is the pics can hang around a long, long, long time. My mum still gets a big kick out of showing folks this one of me. Check out the hair and the cute little outfit. Not to mention them ears!

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    I'm grumpy because I'm wearing a purple jersey. And who wouldn't be bloody well miffed!

    She was at that. Lives in BKK. So to the OP, guess part of my life revolves around keeping her happy.

    Actually I got an old school pic of myself sent to me today, seems ok to put it here.

    I was always a little rebel and hated wearing shirts, made me laugh to see me showing off about not wearing one here. Should be easy to spot me really.
