                                         A FAVORITE STORY
While on vacation a tourist comes upon a most idyllic scene: a man in simple clothes
dozing in a fishing boat that has been pulled out of the waves which come rolling up the sandy beach. The camera clicks, the fisherman awakens.

The
tourist engages the man in conversation: "The weather is great, there are plenty of fish, why are you lying around instead of going out and catching more?" The fisherman replies: "Because I caught enough this morning."

"But just imagine," the tourist says, "you could go out there three or four times a day, bringing home many more fish and do you know what could happen?"

The fisherman shakes his head.

"After about a year you
could buy yourself a motor-boat," says the tourist. "After two years you could buy a second one, and after three years you could have several boats. And just think! One day you might be able to build a freezing plant or a smoke house, or you might eventually even get your own helicopter for tracking fish and guiding your boats, or you could acquire your own trucks to ship your fish to the capital ."

"And then?" asks the fisherman.

"And then", the tourist continues triumphantly, "you could be calmly sitting at the beach side, dozing in the sun and looking at the beautiful ocean!"

The fisherman looks at the tourist: "But that is exactly what I was doing before you came along!"

What a difference 50 years will make. I have worked as a news writer for WGN, taught motorcycle safety, traveled the world and worked in senior management. Of my 4 children, the youngest passed away 4 years ago; I currently have 7 grandchildren (wow). I have my MA in philosophy, which along with my curiosity contributes to my sense of adventure. I am preparing to stop working for someone else and start the second chapter of my life focused on art making. I look forward to rekindling old friendships!
