We took a boat back from My Son. It's always nice to see river life. The fishing and casting of nets by hand is visually stunning and humbling. Watching how people eek out a living is one more opportunity to appreciate what you have. Toiling hours in the sun for a few tiny fish makes telemarketing look appealing. Look at the photos. The lines in their faces trace a path of a life lived with hardship. And the woman has chewed a fair amount of tobacco. We all find a way to make it through the day.
