30 years. I love the proximity, the warm water, the
waves, and most of all, the people. Whenever I spend
time at my place in Rincon I am reminded why, in a recent,
study the people of Puerto Rico were rated amongst the happiest
in the world. I'm also reminded of just how far from simple
many people have made their lives.
It's a just another Sunday here in PR. I spent an hour sitting
talking to a friend on his porch in front of his gallery. A few
customers stopped in, a few other friends stopped by
to chat, and quite a few more beeped and exchanged pleasantries
as they drove by. Under a big tree my neighbors have begun
playing dominos. My wife is feeding leftovers to some neighborhood
dogs. A mother, father, two kids, and their dog are strolling up
the hill after a walk along the beach road.
What are you busy doing? Is it really that important? What are you
in a hurry to do today? Her in Rincon it seems that simplicity and happiness
go hand in hand. Maybe we all can learn that lesson.
