when you go to the carnival

and have finally grown enough 

to reach

the spectacular rides level

that is winning. 



“the determination to win is the better part of winning.”

-daisaku ikeda


I had a field day.


field day with the grandies

water, sweat, smiles, scrapes, popsicles

and absolute fun, all of it.

“life is too short to not have fun;

we are only here for a short time compared to the sun and the moon and all that.”

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”
