Val is a life-long practically oriented student of effective emotional and attitudinal responses to the many challenges of life.

I cannot wait for those right words and phrases

to be invented while by the heavens inspired

for expressing my gratitude and give praises

after getting more than I have ever desired.


Thank you, my life for blessings I've received

and maybe I got more by not expecting much

with all the abundance in my heart conceived

having unfolded for me as if by a Mida's touch.


If I knew how to love life more, I would

without new gifts of life to cause that joy

for all I have got so far is already just good

and no life diplomas for this eternal schoolboy.


Thank you for each temptation and test

giving me opportunity to learn and grow

with no greed, arrogance to claim the best

thank you for everything I have and I know.


Thank you, my life, from depths of my soul

for lessons you taught me, even those I failed

and thank you for guidance to each and every goal

but above all, thank you for each cubit of air I've inhaled.

      Michael---I don't particularly love my neighbor because he is a druggie, but while he feels "high" he probably loves himself enough, so I don't have to.

      But, on the other hand, if YOU happened to be my neighbor, I would suddenly turn religious by "loving you as I am loving myself".

      What can I do, my friend, my love is selective, and that's why I am trying to be as good a dude as I can, in order to love myself. I am still not too crazy about my dark sense of humor, but it's O.K., I am going to leave it as it is---it's fun.

      Thank you for kind words in your comment, my friend.

      Exceptional. One loving self, love his neighbor as himself. Fully proving a point.

      Very meaningful, and an apt reminder for us to slow down and appreciate life.
