Self Portrait !!!
This is me…just another guy who took a photo of himself. A pretty mediocre human being, not really excelling at something in particular and without any extraordinary talent. Probably just the talent of managing to pass by unobserved and easily forgotten (a pretty good thing if you ask me). I smoke and I love coffee. I have two real fears , or decently mild phobias, one is the fear of dark and the other one is the fear I can not see things through to completion (pretty wired huh?!). I really have no idea if I want something from this short and miserable life and I am not sure I should. Recently I realized how tired I am for not having faith (talking about religion or superstitions here). It is so easy to just have someone else to blame for all rather than take responsibility. Now I really do understand the pious ones.
I am not perfect and I don’t follow the advices I give. It’s a nice feeling though when I learn that what I say it is actually helpful to some. I talk too much, too often just a nonsensical jumble of words, and I am too often amazed that people listen (quite polite of them I might add). I complicate everything even though I want to keep it simple.
This is me (ok…maybe there is a lot more but it’s too late in the night to continue ). I know somebody ( a person quite close to my heart) that will disagree with me writing this and, given the chance, will give me a hard time about it. I say to this person that what I wrote doesn’t put me down in any way, but just makes me even more aware of what is good. Let’s call it a reality check needed from time to time. Like a self slap to wake me up to now, to chase away the crazy thoughts rushing through my mind and help me focus.
I do believe in me and in my dreams. I believe in the power of love and I am crazy about Jazz and comedy. I try to be a good person, even if sometimes things out of my control make me look like I’m not. I am cheerful and smiling (honestly smiling) at the world. I take on every challenge that life throws at me with enthusiasm.
My ultimate sin is my passion !
That’s it for now ! Looks like I am Human after all !… (Almost forgot…I do wear an earring for no particular reason and I love it ! )
I didn’t write this to get some attention or to seek approval. I wrote it because I firmly believe we all should share more of what and how we feel so we know we are not alone and to learn from one another. People don’t talk about themselves anymore because they fear judgement.
