As of 2012, I'm a 62 year old father of 3 adult children, and grandfather to 5. Married for 42 years to, the same partner. I am an artist, writer and photographer, with a strong interest in all things creative. I became a vegetarian in 1980, following a primariarly marcobiotic diet because of a health problem. I continued my vegetarian lifestyle until I recently convereted to vegan. I recognized with some surprise that I had in fact been mostely vegan for years, without out declaring myself to be vegan. After reading some additional information about veganism, I recognized that in fact I had quietly slid into a vegan diet without recognizing it. However after some reflection I also came to see how the compassioate lifestyle embraced by vegans mirrored so much of the same ideas I have embraced for many years. It was then that I recognized that in fact, I had always been vegan in spirit, if not in fact.
Hello fellow vegans, here's wishing you peace and plenty in a world shifting very slowly towards compassion and enlightenment as the norm, not the exception.
