James is a good friend of mine who live on Lago Atitlan, I am going to meet him for breakfast today 8:00 at the Dinosaur Café in Pana. I think the real name is the El Dorado at the top of Santander, they have a good 22 Q breakfast.

He is the champion of saying wise statements that are incredibly easy to miss, because they are:

1. Extremely short.
2. Wrapped in a joke.
3. Sound cynical
4. Use of words in non-standard construction of sentence, tantamount to jargon.
5. He talk mono, he does not accent words when he is being cynically wise

I will celebrate James in my book about the The Good Life.

"Sometimes we are inclined to class those who are once-and-a-half witted with the half-witted, because we appreciate only a third part of their wit."
- Henry David Thoreau



The work is listening to James
I enjoy practicing my listening skills, they are fading as I grow older because my memory is not as good as 20 years ago. When James speaks, I often repeat back what he says, it is often a push to get him to repeat it twice, which is the nature of enigmatic cynical, wisecrack wisdoms.
