Fisherman

Before the sun rises there are a few who get up in the middle of the night, prepare their fishing gear and make the trek to the beach, jetty or wharf to go fishing.

I met this great guy on the Jetty, a likable fellow who wouldn’t let me go until he told me a joke which he prefaced by saying “it’s a clean one!” thanks mate. He goes fishing around 3 times a week, has done for the past 20 years or so. He was also able to give me a brief history lesson of the state of the fishing and how stocks have dropped over the years.

Talking to him reminded me that fame and fortune aren’t what really matters and that we can find great joy in the simple things in life.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
