Just Happy...

December 12, 2009

I think I am the happiest and probably the luckiest person in the world. I have general good health (forget the occasional blips…everyone has them), great family, wonderful friends, the ability to be comfortable with who I am, and what I can achieve, the ability to learn (albeit, very slowly), I like people and am perennially interested in them….all this is incredibly good fortune…yes, I do have a fortune in my mind and heart…and it may long after Thanksgiving, but I do give thanks.

On the Chennai Photowalk, I found this beggar, whose crutches need crutches…

Now, would I call him lucky or not? Believe me, he was grinning at all the photographers, who all pressed money upon him… perhaps this appearance is his stock-in-trade, to help get photographers get their “artistic” and “ethnic” this-is-India shots!

Off to the Zoo area to have a nice little ramble….
