Standard

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

walked up

and stood before me pointing

 then proclaiming,

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”

“people fail to get along because they fear each other;

they fear each other because they don’t know each other;

they don’t know each other

because they have not communicated with each other.”
