the fourth tenet of well-being

hard physical work




fourth of five

 

sometimes i would leave

the comfort

of the patio   and my on and off

 

conversation with colin's grandfather

to actually

help colin   and the others

 

work the endless rows of vines

sweat labor

hard physical work 

 

being to me as compassion 

is to 

certain elected officials

 

but it did me good

i slept well

my muscles ached the next day   

 

and i had an unfamiliar   or at least different

sense of well-being

Hard work can take you out of yourself. That can be a very good thing.
