  1. Hi Shabnam, yes indeed, I’m trying to figure out my direction. I feel a need to share some details of my life the same as you. I came to the conclusion I must leave word of my legacy for my family. Documenting what we have done may be inspiration to another. John.

  2. John, thank you for visiting! I can’t agree more. I believe in sharing our words with others. when it comes from our hearts, it goes directly to other’s hearts and we make a heart to heart connection. Life is about love! Hope to see you around!
