Asleep

May 27, 2019

An old man had lived most of his life on what was considered to be one of the loveliest islands in the world. Now that he had returned to spend his retirement years in the big city, someone asked him, “It must have been wonderful to live for so many years on an island that is considered one of the wonders of the world.”

The old man gave that some thought, then said, “Well, to tell you the truth, if I had known it was so famous, I’d have looked at it.”  

Anthony de Mello (1931-1987)
