Today after my early morning visit to the salon for a redeeming haircut I popped into a swimwear boutique. There I landed upon two articles which are utterly pedestrian. One will complete an equally prosaic piece I bought on a whim last week; the other is an everyday commodity for relaxed wear but with a bit more presence than normal. The spontaneity of the moment is transparently enlarged by the awakening of my doddering body and anguished soul spirited by the vivid sunshine, glowing heat and peerless swimming in the pool and the sea. I have as well bicycled about 5 - 7 miles each day. All of which is rewarded at the end of the day with a very correct meal of fresh fish and raw green vegetables.
Contrary to what is advanced by Mr. Ecclesiastes the motive in my opinion is neither selfish nor pointless. The mind/body dichotomy is not to be taken lightly; but the conjunction outweighs the chasm. I have found the facility of one improves commensurately with the health of the other. Meanwhile it is these plain sailing materialistic pleasures which celebrate the confluence.
