What I love best about the world of blog
is knowing that we are all sowing
Seeds of kindness.
Seeds of compassion and connection.
Taking a handful of wisdom seeds and throwing them out
to see where they will take root.
We just never know when
something we say will be
just what someone needed to hear that day
the instrument of healing
the only flash of joy and laughter in
an otherwise lousy day
a token of friendship to someone feeling lonely
the turning point in someone's life path.
We just never know.
But what a powerful tool for affirming our connection
as human beings, as entities hungering
for belonging and affirmation.
I'm awed that only 500 years (give or take a few)
after the invention of the printing press,
my words can bounce around the world -
can be read by hundreds of strangers
just by my choosing to click on the words
May wonders never cease.
