Who would you be?

A very dear pen-pal recently asking me a very difficult question. I have thought about it non-stop for quite some time now. The question at first appears to be very easy and simple. "If you could be anyone in the world, at anytime in history, who would you be, and why?" What a wonderful question, and yet it has plagued me for weeks now. At first I thought of the great minds, the inventors, the artists, the composers. Then I thought about hero's, people who showed bravery and courage under odds that would make most of us shrink away in fear and self preservation. But no matter who I considered, I would slowly start to pick them apart. They all had flaws. So, now I ask myself, is there anyone in the world that we can look up too, and aspire to be like? We are human, and by nature are not, can not, will never be, perfect. We all have flaws, and make mistakes. I like to think, that if given the choice, I would pick to be someone who saves man kind from a horrable disease, or prevents a war, or some other atrocity. Or someone who shares his gifts to bring joy and enlightment to the world. But I am not. If given the choice, I would most likely choose to be a player. Lets face it, I am a guy, I worship women, and would love to be one of those guys that is surrounded by as many of them as possable. Sadly, I must be honest with you, and myself. I would turn down the chance to prevent the horrable, for the chance of getting laid by many a lovely women. I know, what a pig, but like I already said, none of us are perfect. So, who would you choose to be? Now on a more serous note, I considered some people of a relougis nature also. The pope? Fuck him!!! He's dead, and I am fucking glad that he is. I just wish I could dance on his mother fucking grave. Close minded, bigget that he, and most catholics are. Then I considered someone who I respect dearly. The dahli lahma(sp?) and it would be very cool to be that wise, and be at peace with the universe like that. But then again, I must face my more animalistic feelings. Hot girls are not ligning up to do him, and so I must move on.

LDS Temple in Mesa

Wife took me to this temple to walk around the grounds, very pretty place.
