Portrait Of A Happy And Contented Man...
He's a happily contented man
of which there are too few.
I had the pleasure of spending time and sharing chi with him in his wonderfully simple dwelling recently. It had rained during the night, yes there are a few leaks, so rather than let the opportunity pass, he poured some detergent on the floor and gave it a good scrub.
He's house proud and his vegetable garden is abundant with food.
I'm full of admiration for this man and his dedication to the simple pleasures of life under the sun and under the stars.
He's not one of those Thoreau describes as living lives of quiet desperation...
