A foot note

I made it to the Monastery. Would you believe I was afraid? It is about a 30 minutes drive away. I was a taken back by its beauty and peace. I had forgotten how neat it is to be around monks. I meditated and chanted with them for 1 hour. I then listened to some wisdom and shared how I had fallen into their company. I explained how hard and overwhelming I had found buying food for them at the supermarket. Afterwards we drank tea outside in the garden.

We shared stories and experiences. I told them of my very material job and other things. The moment of inspiration or clarity. The second monk said.

"Through meditation Dan, one day you may stand in a supermarket and be surrounded by the calmness that is the ocean."

Magic.
