I took eight pictures of these collard greens this morning, from eight different angles. (Yes, I know, it sounds like I had too much time on my hands.) The color and tone of each and every image is different. That’s always the truth, isn’t it? We choose how we view our surroundings.
I learned that Cal gave one of his two dollars to a friend, today, whose parent forgot to send money with him for our school’s second grade market. Another friend gave Cal, and the other boy, an additional quarter, and then all three of them were able to buy five honey sticks.
Washington elections are by mail in ballot; I just finished filling mine in. I miss the ‘I Have Voted, Have You?’ buttons from back in the day of voting in person. I feel a sense of loss because of the missed opportunity to connect to my community in that way.
Generosity and perspective and community. Where would we be without them?
