Yes, he is a full patch Buddhist!

If there is one quality that is the saving of those, Buddhist or no, who work in high stress/high exposure jobs it’s having a sense of humour. Which helps to maintain a sense of perspective in situations where one might want to cry all day. My hosts of the past few nights, both in high stress jobs, certainly have a great sense of humour – and a respectful one too.

And early this year a young man who immersed himself in the life of the DTES and made a series of videos, Streets of Plenty. He starts out sassy and ends up a lot lot wiser as he gets deeper into the life.

You will have to look up what full patch means, to bikers.
