happened upon this man enjoying his solitude while out walking tonight.
“extraordinary things happen in solitude.”
apricity – the warmth of the sun in the winter.
this term comes from the latin meaning “to bask in the sun.”

while spending the better part of a morning
at the salon
and at the having my hair washed stage
a woman I’ve never met
hair in foil for highlights
wrapped in a black robe
and stood before me pointing
to the entire salon:
“now here is a woman who is contented and relaxed,
taking 10 minutes, all for herself!”
something about my demeanor
must have given me away
for she was spot on.
“contentment is the only real wealth”
