shooting the breeze

A friendly mid-day game of pool

Filipinos are notorious for taking time for one another;
it's common to see people just sitting together by the side of the road,
at any time of day,
in no rush,
shooting the breeze.

Relationship matters most.

But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life,
 and thanks to a benevolent arrangement 
the greater part of life is sunshine.
-Thomas Jefferson

Will you take time for what matters most to you today?

Our Western idea of productivity sure seems skewed the wrong way!

Oh, that attitude is my favorite thing about living on this side of the world :-)

Beautiful! Never thought I'd say that about a game of pool. ;)
