Each afternoon on a bench just on the edge of the park, where the grass meets the sandy beach of the sea, sits an old man. His skin is weathered by the sun and the wind, his clothes worn and tattered, but his eyes are warm and kind. As he sits quietly, almost trans-like, his body slowly comes alive with animated gestures and his story telling begins.
The gentle flow of a river over the rocks, cutting through the land, passing the plants forever grounded along its shore line, brings to mind the path of least resistance our lives rarely take, but often seek.

He uses time as one of the measuring sticks, defining each moment as a second, minute, hour, day, month, and year.
