  ON CONTENTMENT

All the "great concerns" of my younger years have been dealt with... or not, depending on how life unfolded. I have learned that strawberries will be sweet and lemons sour whether I attend them or not. Also that my own most strenuous efforts cannot hold back a tide nor empty a sea.

  My ego has suffered as my place in the universe became clear and the sun & moon have continued in their orbits without asking my leave. As a "Master of The Universe" I am a total failure; but now I am old enough to know that it is better this way.

I saw the sun rise this morning...

I saw the moon rise this evening...

I have, at day's end, a sip of fine cognac for my coffee.

I have enjoyed my bowl of rice...

I have life...

I have a few valued friends...

It is enough.

Now, in my 71st year, I am content.
