A Meditative Encounter

The isolation and quiet dedication of a solitary fisherman in the middle of a frozen lake captured my attention. This turned a frigid February day into a welcomed experience of mindfulness.

  1. Knowing nothing about frozen rivers (it does not get that cold here) does the fisherman make a hole in the ice to fish through? I assume he can tell that the ice is strong enough to support him!

    1. Yes, the fisherman makes a hole. He SHOULD know if the ice is safe…however, a fisherman fell through the ice yesterday in a nearby town. (He was rescued safely.) He probably should have noticed it was melting!
