Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered.

Life is a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, at times lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley. But always, if we have faith, a door will open, not perhaps one that we ourselves would ever have thought of, but one that ultimately proves good for us.

To live - Life, is to choose. But to choose, you must know who you are, and what you stand for, where you want to go, and why you want to get there.

Accepting that success in Life is subjectively self-defined, through an exponential, contiguous and sometimes serendipitous journey, I decided on the following ethos:

"If I live as far as possible, with an honesty that moves beyond self-deception, life can have the meaning I give it."(paraphrasing Nietzsche)

"Show me absolutely - not respectively, distinctly - not confusedly, certainly - not probably, just what is . . ."(paraphrasing Martin Luther)

What I know to be true is, "the only way to predict the future - is to create it."

So glancing into the future . . . I will be the same person in five years, as I am today, except for the influence of:

the people I spend time with,

the places and cultures I experience, and

the books I read.

Life has become both thinking and behavior, as different sides of the same coin; while recognizing that reality doesn't stand still long enough to be accurately mirrored.

So let the legacy of the closing chapter of my Life be, that of being an adept Navigator, and an enthusiastic Explorer.

Living Life with few regrets.
