Hi I'm Joseph Forman

I am from Colfax CA, I am a classical pianist, geologist, lover of the outdoors, classical literature is my thing, I am a Mormon!

About Me

I love to practice the piano as well as listen to classical music and learn about how a piece of music is important. My favorite Composers are Bach, Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff is my favorite of all. My favorite artists include Sviatislav Richter, Evgeny Kissin, Boris Berezovsky, and Nikolai Lugansky. I love Geology, I love the beauty of the Earth and how it works, I love looking at a landscape and wondering and trying to read it and figure out how it was formed. I love going down to the river and panning for gold, I love using my sluice box and metal detector. I love hiking, especially in the mountains, I feel close to my Heavenly Father being out in nature and exploring new things and places. I love classical literature, a few books that have changed my life include Goethe's Faust, The Robe, 1984, Walden, Night, The Kreutzer Sonata by Tolstoy... and many others, I especially love the Russian writers, such as Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky. I have learned many great truths and insights to life by reading and studying great literature. I also love collecting and using knives as well as sharpening them, a knife isn't good unless you can shave your face with it!

Why I am a Mormon

There is no religion, no philosophy, no way of life that is so complete, as the Mormon faith (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints). It is everything that was ever talked about in scripture, plus the assurance that our Heavenly Father still loves us and cares for us and reveals new truths for us to Learn what He is like as well as what we may become one day. I have received great joy, made lasting friendships, as well as discovered who I am and what my place in this world and position in eternity is. The more one learns, it just makes sense, I know exactly the character of my Father in Heaven, and His Son Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Colorado Fort Collins Mission, I receive great joy serving others physically and spiritually. I try to share the things I love, i.e. music and geology, with as many as can bear my ramblings, everything I have and everything I do is because it is a gift from a loving Heavenly Father, I am His child and I must share my gifts and talents with others, sharing these things is what the essence of my faith is about.
