Here it is, the answer to the meaning to life!

Here it is, the answer to the meaning to life!

After writing in my last blog post about the meaning of life, I’ve had some lovely reactions to it……

And now can reveal what it is.

Are you ready?

Ok, well, after long and hard consideration I can say that I know the answer to the meaning to life. I am an avid people watcher, I am interested in lots of diverse people, I talk to people from all walks of life, from spiritual people, to scientists, artists, accountants, business people, home-makers, and high flyers! And for all people, in all walks of life, whatever their age from new born babies to very old people, the answer is the same.

The meaning of life is………………. in three words……………………………. Sorting out problems.

That’s it!

Every day, we have problems to sort out. From finding enough food to live on, or earning enough money to live the way we want. From fighting for survival, or problems with our health, from keeping warm, and a roof over our heads, protecting our family, or building up a career, learning an education, sorting out quality time to be with friends, travelling to important places, booking holidays, fighting legal problems, living the way we want, finding spiritual fulfillment, exploring science, passing on knowledge, gaining power, influencing people, learning ways of being creative, or finding novel ways to relax.

Its all sortAzure shimmer (2)ing out problems. That’s all we do. Different problems on different days, and they change as we go through life. But that’s it, that’s the whole meaning of life as far as I am concerned.

However, my friend who I was chatting to at the weekend, who is an intellegent man who knows business, and life, and people, from a totally different direction from the one I know, sums up “the meaning of life” as something else.

Just one word. And that word is …………………………. “Shopping”.

Before you scoff, and think to yourself “That’s rubbish, there’s more to life than that”, think deeply about it.

What would you do if you won the big prize on the  lottery? You’d buy a bigger house, a nicer car, go on holidays, buy nice clothes and jewellery, you’d travel, stay in nice hotels, and maybe invest in a business. Till you got bored. Then you’d look for another house, better cars, an art collection, a race horse, a yacht in Monaco.

It’s all Shopping!

You do it all the time, you do it to make yourself happy. And in the meantime, before you win the lottery, you “shop” – ok, it might be shopping for basics like food, or paying for electricity, or rent, or for petrol for the car, but its all shopping.

So that’s it, thats the secret to life for you. From two people who know! 🙂

I've been an artist all of my life, and my paintings now hang on walls in Europe, USA and Canada. I'm working on getting them on the other continents! My wide range of artwork has been exhibited nearer to home in the East Midlands, with the Guild of Erotic Artists at Beaumont Hall Studios in Hertfordshire, and at "Erotica", Olympia, London. I have also been featured alongside my work in the Guild of Erotic Artists book (volume 2). I love to create dramatic interest in my pictures, whether it’s to paint an unusual landscape, or just to utilise dramatic lighting in my figure drawings or strong colour in my animal portraits. Delighting in the spontaneous tendencies of watercolour adds an interesting and distinctive look to my paintings, some of which are purposefully ambiguous, enabling the viewer to use their own interpretation of my artwork. I also love to hide images, and humour within my paintings, whether it’s a secret message, or an erotic couple hidden within a landscape, or even an erotic landscape where the couple are camouflaged as the features of the land itself. I am equally happy painting in oils, acrylics or watercolours and love to draw with pencil or ink. I have also developed the very effective method of drawing using white pencil on black card which creates dramatic pictures by just picking out where the light catches the body and leaving the rest of the image to the imagination, in darkness. I can also utilise many different styles, whether it is realistic, abstract, surrealistic, erotic, fantasy or camouflage art where something is hidden within the painting. I'm just passionate about my art, whatever I paint! But, it doesn't matter how many landscapes or pet portraits I paint, its always the erotic stuff that people are interested in! I started blogging to share some of the strange conversations I have with the people I meet. But its evolved into far more than that now.
