"We shall practice listening so attentively that we are able to hear what the other is saying -- and also what is left unsaid. We know that by listening deeply we already alleviate a great deal of pain and suffering in the other." -- Anonymous

Idea of the Week

"We went to a theatre to watch a documentary yesterday. The audience it attracted was mostly "older" adults..... 70's & 80's. While writing for the film to start. I was blessed to be engaged in conversation with a few different people who shared stories of their youth with me. I loved their energy & loved hearing their stories... I was totally absorbed in listening. Their eyes shone telling me their stories & my heart shone hearing them. I left with happiness in my heart a smile on my face. Everyone has stories to share & listening to them is a kindness gift for both the teller & the listener. Grateful." -- Mish

Comment of the Week

"What motivates my kindness is life's trials and tribulations that I've gone through and continue to encounter that have taught me to be humble and offer a smile at all times, listening ear when needed, services when able, and hug on demand." - Curie

Cleaning The Car And The Coast
September 19, 2014 - Posted by tsagem28
Yesterday I helped a very busy friend clean out her car. We vacuumed and steam cleaned the upholstery. She was so happy and relieved to finally have it done!

Today was International Coastal Clean-up Day. So, my husband and I spent a very rainy morning picking up trash on the beach. 

It seems like such a drop in the bucket (even though it involved many buckets) but it was a satisfying experience and one we will continue regularly on our own.

I highly recommend this experience. It may change your perspective on all things plastic!
