Large pleasures from small deeds

As an old man I enjoy some things more than ever. Going from point A to point B, for example. The most ordinary activity ... going to the post office or market or Starbucks or library ... provides great pleasure in its opportunity for people watching or random inconsequential conversation or unexpected encounters or brooding or brooding leading to discovery ... just hanging out has become a great pleasure. We are a very funny and sad species. In the final analysis, the human condition is a dance on the cosmic vaudville circuit. Gotta dig it, man.
