I am a man who observes the world.
I love the beauty of the physical world around me,
But I detest the ugliness and decay that man has wrought.
I am an optimist because I know redemption comes,
But I am a pessimist because I understand the nature of mankind.
The path is narrow and hard.
Yet I yearn for the peace it brings.
These are my chronicles;
Of sorrows, joys, pleasures, and hopes.
