Lawrence J. Chestnut

Twenty plus years living and/or working abroad contributes to defining me. This travel and mingling with cultures all around the world represents the first pillar that holds this shell of a man up. Education makes up the second of four pillars. Though I have completed formal education years ago, I am on a constant search for knowledge. I have decided that I shall read the 100 Greatest Novels ever written (according to one professor or another) starting this year. The third pillar is a love for the arts (writing, music, painting, photography) – all creative forms. I am currently putting the finishing touches on my book called ‘Is That An Amen or A Negro Please, Assorted literary Ranting of Lawrence J. Chestnut’. This particular project expresses the importance of the forth pillar – God- the Universe.

If you stand all of these pillars up to form part of my foundation you do not get a terribly stable ‘metro sexual’ but one who is in a constant state of flux. However it does not hurt to share my life mantra, which I borrow from a song. Of all things you can do and/or be one should always strive ‘to love and be loved in return.’
