    The industrialist was horrified to find the fisherman lying
    beside his boat, smoking his pipe.

    - why arent u you fishing? said the industrialist.

    - because i have caught enough fish for the day.

    - why dont you catch some more?

    - what would i do with them?

    - earn more money. then you could have a motor fixed to your boat
    and go into deeper waters and catch more fish. that would bring
    you money to buy nylon net, so more fish, more money. Soon you
    would have enough to buy two boats even a fleet of boats. Then you
    could be rich like me.

    - What would i do then?

    - Then you could sit back and enjoy life.

    - What do you think Im doing now?

    God Bless

    This is great. Such a good message. I wish a couple of my children could see it this way.

    We are so compulsive here in the West - this is really radical thinking. Everyone prides themselves on being so busy - but so many valuable things are lost.

    Maybe since our DD's cause us to slow down - we can find some treasures in living in the present moment. And savoring the people we love.
