I have a happy and healthy family, playful kids, loving wife.
I get to play with different gadgets everyday. And working for myself.
And because we live in beautiful New Zealand, thankful everyday for our adopted country. Moving here's the best decision we've ever made.

Couldn't ask for more.... :)

There's so many things that give life worth living, I don't know where to start.
I have no spiritual beliefs, but that doesn't mean it's just "thing" that fill my life up.
Just being an animal that is at a stage in its evolution that's able to contemplate the universe is quite awe-inspiring to me at times.
Just knowing that life is short and fleeting is enough to drive me to make the most of it.
Music (playing it, recording it, listening to it.)
Art.
My fiancee.
My cat.
My friends.
My family.
Keeping up with the latest scientific discoveries.

Life has it's crappy moments, but that just makes me appreciate the awesome moments all the more.

Most of all, I'm glad I've lived NOW, and in THIS country, over any other point or place in human history.

I don't think I love life, but maybe my bar is set far higher.

I'm fortunate I don't live in a dung heap, I'm pleased that I own a nice (to me) car, I'm satisfied that I'm not permanently destitute, I'm fairly happy that I can get by without "working" 12 hours a day, I'm moderately comfortable that I don't have any grotesque deformities.

But none of this qualifies as 'loving life' in my opinion.

Plenty of people who live in dung heaps, walk barefoot to a job they work 16 hour days for less than the price of a cup of tea which they have to slurp through a straw due to their deformities probably 'love life' more than me.

Who am I to say what 'loving life' means.
