The photo shoot was scheduled for early morning at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. The photographer and crew from Sports Illustrated were shooting swim suit models for the Fall Surf edition. the Face of Everyman enjoyed being part of the action and attention except that the constant spray in his face was annoying.

A spirit of generosity swept over J. D. He called out to the small crow by the cabana huts; “Would you like some bread?” Not realizing that the life like silhouette could not respond, he turned next to the Face of Everyman. As it happened, the venerable sage was fasting. Everywhere he turned throughout the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa there seemed no one to whom he could share his bounty of stale whole wheat bread. The spirit of generosity left J.D. as swiftly as it had arrived. He relished every morsel.
