“It isn’t about love or laughter or happiness.  It’s not about food, sex, sadness or pain.  It’s about how long you can hold your breath underwater without losing consciousness.  It’s about endurance.”

An elderly man on the street told me this after I asked him for the meaning of life.  He had been standing along the curb, looking as if he was waiting to be picked up and driven away to someplace, death most likely, and wearing a sign hanging from his neck that read, “Answer to the Meaning of Life $1”

“Do you tell everyone the same answer?”  I ask the man after giving him a dollar.

The man stuffed the bill into the pocket of his pants.  “No,” he said.  “I’ve got different answers for different people.”

“Then, what made you choose that answer for me?”

The man looked out into the street thinking.  “Because that’s the best answer I got.”  The man finally said.

I gave him another dollar, thanked him and walked away.
