Just a few idle Saturday thoughts today. . .

There are few things as innocently pleasant as a brief, no consequences conversation with a stranger in public.

To make the world "POP," to make the air sweeter, the skies bluer, just spend an hour visiting in a hospital room.

"What can I do?"

I can really believe in the value of every person I see, or interact with today. I can treat each one with consideration, even a small thing like slowing to let someone go first. When I feel Aloha for this person before me, they feel it without words. Today I can spread peace, warmth, and understanding.

Just for today

I can do something.
