The Barefoot Man across the Street

My neighbor across the street has many times fed me food items that he has prepared. Ted is a cook extraordinaire, in my opinion. More important than his culinary expertise, he is a good neighbor. When he called me recently, asking if I were home, I figured he was going to bring me another nice something he had prepared. Sure enough, when I glanced out the door, he was headed barefoot across the street, carrying a large dish. He said it was a chicken dish. I learned it also contained pasta, a tomato sauce, onions, cheese and black beans. It was delicious. There was another sort of irony in this situation as Ted volunteers as a “Meals on Wheels” driver. Here he was acting now only as a neighbor, delivering “Meals on Foot,” helping me get through this time when my partner is visiting with his mother and sister in Athens, Greece.

    Buddhists (followers of the noble Buddhism) always practice, giving alms to the monks and needy. They offer four fold needs ( robes, meals, dwellings and medicines) to the monks. See the Buddhist culture for more. Your Nebougher is great. He acquires merits doing kind deeds.
