Bubba was out weeding one day. Nice day. Sunny. Cool. Two young men approached, dressed in Mormon Missionary costume, and greeted him politely.
“Good afternoon, Sir. Have you heard about Jesus?”
“Hell, I live in the US, I’m in my 60’s, how could I not have heard about Jesus?” Bubba thinks.
He ponders the scene; considers two possible paths: one, sweep them on; the other, engage in the moment.
He decides to engage.
The boys won’t get a typical conversation. Bubba, a student of many religions and New Age spiritual beliefs, talks to them. About being in the moment.
“This moment,” he says, “this moment right now.”
