K. Just look at that letter. Straight back, limbs out at a diagonal.Kind of looks like it’s just marching along, doesn’t it? Not easy to write for those whose handwriting best resembles the scratching of a drunken chicken.
KINDLE came to mind. I’m a one click addict, and rely on the opportunity to ‘grow’ the size of the text when I’m tired. It would be much smarter to take a nap, but…so many books, so little time. Which brought me to my KEURIG, that controversial one cup coffee addiction delight. I modified my habit by using pods that are 97% recyclable. I did mention my coffee (ahem) addiction earlier in the alphabet. IN C, OF ALL PLACES!
I thought about KARMA but Stephen Tremp covered that pretty well, don’t you think?
I kept coming back to something I’ve tried to do…not always successfully. We’ve all read about Random Acts of Kindness, right? Nothing ostentatious or extravagant. Just little things like picking up something a stranger dropped…even letting them know it’s been dropped is often a huge help. Putting out water for birds. Planting a garden to help nourish butterflies. Heck, even putting trash in a container instead of on the ground is being kind to others. To Earth as well, so…BONUS POINTS.
Makes you feel pretty good about yourself to do these little things, doesn’t it. Yeah, me too. Then I picked up one of those check out line magazines…the one with diet success stories and chocolate cake bliss recipes. That one, right. And I found an article about AN ORGANIZATION OF KINDNESS. I see that article is repeated on the website, cool.
As the article points out, little things can add up to huge results. Negatively as well as positively, but this Monday we’re going to overwhelm our world with positivity. In that light, I want to share:
Glen Campbell is now in late stage Alzheimer’s. His music will speak for him, against those “Narrow minded people on their narrow minded street.” What more can we do ourselves?
