John believes his childhood would have been a Utopia, had it not ended in grimy chaos. He has given up looking for traces of Utopia in the West. It will be a gift after he dies. It is not that John does not feel pleasure. He seems a sensualist, easily and congenially distracted to wrap himself in pleasure. He will not discard pleasure for anything less, but it is not an element of Utopia. That is reserved for depth, meaning, communion with his fellows. He looks for those he wants to see again - with richness of soul to last until the end of time. John does not believe in Heaven - Utopia - as reward or punishment. It is fulfilment granted when people have enough inner substance to be loved. It is the only thing of Utopia that John seeks. He will have known company when he arrives. He strives for worthiness.Name: John H. Holliday, DDS.

I am trying to write to specific word counts. Drabbles maybe. 150 words is less intimidating right now.
