From Eric Hoffer’s Working and Thinking on the Waterfront:
I derive a subtle pleasure from the conviction that the world does not owe me anything. I need little to be contented: two good meals, tobacco, books that hold my interest, and a little writing every day. This to me is a full life.
Instead of tackling the crowd, the heavy traffic, the humidity and the early evening storm, today I stayed home in the comfort of A/C, home cooked meal, two amusingly kitties, playing dress-up in my closet, watching previous season Project Runaway and dipping into a stack of library borrowed books. My boyfriend and I did go out for a short evening ride in his convertible. Oh just to get some fresh air after the rain. As Eric Hoffer said, I need little to be contented.
