Meanwhile...

We were at the library, where we go frequently.  I’m a huge fan of the library.  We probably go there a couple of times a week.  Anyway, we were in the parking lot, which has meters, and we noticed the meter enforcement person pull up.  She got out and walked over to a car and …

We drink a lot of coffee.  Everyday in the morning, then some decaf each night in Grannies cups.  K’s Granny.  It’s cool.   Point is, we like coffee.  Today we decided to spread love and kindness through coffee.  We went through a drive-thru and paid for the person behind us.

I looked at all the trees and didn’t know what to do. A box made out of leaves. What else was in the woods? A heart, closing. Nevertheless. Everyone needs a place. It shouldn’t be inside of someone else. I kept my mind on the moon. Cold moon, long nights moon. From the landscape: a …

We pretty much take our dogs for a walk everyday.  The length varies, depending on weather and our schedule, but for the most part we try to get them out for a jaunt on a daily basis.  When we walk we choose routes in our area of town, in our neighborhood.  During today’s walk we …

I’m still reading the book of Sarah Kay’s poetry called, “No Matter The Wreckage”. I read this gem, then found her performance of it as part of her TED talk.  It’s worth a listen, probably more than one listen.  When I read it, then listened to it, I thought of my grand daughter.  It will &#

I’m currently reading a book of poetry by Sarah Kay called “No Matter The Wreckage”.  I can tell you, as a person who has read a lot of poetry, this girl is fantastic.  I just read the following poem in the book, went to look for it online to post, and found this video.  She …

K makes great jam, so when our mail lady came up to the porch today I handed her a large jar of pear jam.   She was very happy to get it.  I think it might have made her day.  Kindness doesn’t have to cost anything, so be kind and spread joy!  Filed under: Going …

Today’s random act of kindness was to call a faraway friend or relative to say hello.  We decided to pick up the phone and give Lisa, K’s cousin, a jingle.  We hardly ever get to see her, and shamefully never talk to her on the phone, so we thought she would be a good choice. …

Day three of our Kindness Advent involved putting money in a vending machine with a note letting the next person know there was a credit on the machine for them to use.  We’re spreading joy, one bag of chips or candy bar at a time!  Filed under: Going Global, LiFe Tagged: 24RACKs, it's the little …

Today’s kindness adventure led us to our own backyard where we fed the birds with Tessa.  As we did we talked to her about how it’s good to be kind to all creatures great and small.  Her comment, “I feed birdie’s”.  She’s already getting the hang of this kindness thing.

K and I have been in a funk for a bit.  A lot of people have, we aren’t alone in this.  Mostly for us I think it’s because there’s so much anger and nastiness out there.  But when we talk about it we, being us, inevitably end up talking about how we can’t do anything …

When you doubt the world look at the undivided darkness look at Wheeler Peak cliffs like suspended prayers contemplate the cerulean the gleaming limestone the frozen shades the wildflowers look at the bristlecone pine a labyrinth to winding wonders listen to the caves sing silently remember the smell of sagebrush after a th

I will wake you up early even though I know you like to stay through the credits. I will leave pennies in your pockets, postage stamps of superheros in between the pages of your books, sugar packets on your kitchen counter. I will Hansel and Gretel you home. I talk through movies. Even ones I …

It’s Thanksgiving.  I’m thankful, and grateful, for so many things… the people in my life who I love and who love me, the warmth of the sun on a cold day, cuddles with the pups, a cup of hot coffee with just the right amount of half and half, a good story, the birds at …
