I love books and all the art forms. I enjoy making new friends and relish long-time relationships. Laughter, creativity and philosophy are my greatest weapons against the dark forces. I believe goodness, beauty, and truth always prevail in the end.

When we first meet Alyosha, he is a member of
the monastery and a special disciple of the religious elder, Father
Zossima. As the story progresses, he becomes the living embodiment of

has an unusual ability to love all, and he has great faith in the basic
goodness of man, even if doesn't always seem to benefit him.
