From Hand to Mouth

He can’t afford to travel any more than the distance between his hand and his mouth, so he puts his head down and never sees the sky. He has a family to take care of, and for him, it is easier for him to do his duty rather than try to exceed it.

It’s hard enough to simply wait for fish to bite, and even then it’s the only opportunity he’d be willing to accommodate into his mundane life.

Eventually, he discovers his sons aren’t very different from him, as they both set about to do what they must without regard for anyone else’s advice.
