I just had to borrow this quote from one of my favourite authors...
"Each of us has been designed for one of two immortal functions, as either a storyteller or as a cross-legged listener to tales of wonder, love, and daring. When we cease to tell or listen, then we no longer exist as a people."

Bryce Courtenay RIP

When he's writing I'm quite comfortable cross-legged
