Quiet contemplation on a hot afternoon

I was on a tour near the city of Huatulco, Mexico, when we visited an old church. The afternoon was hot, and the church wasn't air conditioned. As we left, I turned to look again at the open side door, and caught this man sitting in one of the wooden pews. He looked relaxed, comfortable, and at peace.
