Contentment is relative. Its definition varies from one person to another. For others it is an elusive state. But not for this fisher folk of Riroan who caught my attention on my beach hike mid part of May.
I passed the route twice (going to and going back from Miligabiga). Up close I was able to get a glimpse of a life of a fisherfolk whose life depends on the sea for survival – content for the day that the sea has been always kind for a catch that is more than enough for his need.
note: The title is a rip-off from the movie Flatliners’ famous line : “Today is a good day to die!” My thanks to Elmer who celebrated his birthday yesterday 🙂
