He sat there sipping his soft drink wondering about so many things… But what struck his thoughts most was that he was in a place where everything existed… And literally everything existed… From clean streets to fancy hotels to sexy women and good old fashioned sex… To toying with guns and going out on exciting , intriguing unique experiences only this place could ever afford.. Hot wheels and top of the line straight from the catwalk clothes… Very secure and neat…. Everything about that place screamed out .. “You want it … I have it” It it meant it to the word… Every letter of that word was taken ever so seriously in that country… People from all around the world flocked to this place… This haven..Everyone wanted a piece of it… Even he felt excited about it the first time he set foot in it.. But even when he did … Something wasn’t there.. Something he couldn’t define better than one word.. “A Soul”….

He paused for a moment in his thoughts then looked at himself as he sat in front of the mirror of his hotel… And he realized something..There were two images of him…The him that wants anything and everything about “La Joie de vivre” all never ending excitement that complains about how he can never enjoy anything truly by just being who he is… And the other him.. That just was silent, quietly observing as if it knew it didn’t have to utter words to make him understand.. Or transfer what it thought… It knew he could feel what it wanted to say…

He then rested back in his chair , closed his eyes and took a deep breath before he leaned forward and looked outside of the window.. And all he could see was the silence of the night… And he whispered only one word…”Soul”
