Things that am GLAD ABOUT in my life, so far:

-To remain in deep love after 12 years in marriage; Discovering that an Open relationship strengthens the love bond, thanks to my wife.
-In the recent past spending few nights at a nudist camp was a life changing experience. A new world of respect! It was so nice that we visited Cap d'Agde, the paradise for naturalists! Hopefully, one day, we can embrace naturalism fully.
-Have watched every Messi game since 2007 / 08! Watched him live too, once, in Kolkota, one day I will never forget.
-Continue living the 'old style' life, with no // or even a smart phone!
