I came across a letter to the Editor in Maclean's magazine a couple of days ago in regards to the "economic crisis". The writer was making the point that contentment is something that is sadly lacking in society today. Many individuals seem to be so busy acquiring and consuming and not taking the time to enjoy what they already have. There is a lot of value in the statement that less is more! I do find myself waffling at the thought of a book embargo though. This picture was taken last Fall in Hyde Park, London and it's one of my absolute favourites. A stone's throw away is the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street and yet he cares naught for all that. He is the picture of contentment.


  1. How true you are. I think a 10 minute meditation will force me to stop, breathe deeply and appreciate what I have...home, family, good health. What more could we ask for. Oh, and lovely photograph Darlene!

  2. Yes, I've been thinking a lot about this lately. All so true. Contentment sounds like such a lovely, comfy, cozy place to be. K x
