True contentment is a thing as active as agriculture. It is the power of getting out of any situation all that there is in it. It is arduous and it is rare.

Outside was warmer than I expected, but still crisp. Yet, the pond was frozen. An usual but serendipitous combination. I took a nice, refreshing walk. I stretched on the grass.
I immediately forgot what was going on in my office. My mind cleared.
Today, getting all there is out of a frenzied situation means creating a calm moment.
