Today, the sun is shining, and out in the world, people are working to make things better.

Right now, people are giving quarters to beggars on the street, rescuing abandoned infants, putting fragile ecosystems into conservation trusts, sheltering runaways, feeding hungry people. Right now, millions of people are acting with love and tenderness towards family, friends, and strangers.

Right now, people are growing a bounty of fruits and vegetables that are bursting into ripeness, conceiving brilliant schemes, and someone is plotting an inspired surprise that will delight and unsuspecting friend.

Right now, I can't even foresee what awesome thing is going to change the world tomorrow. Right now, anything fantastic could happen any moment.

(Inspired by the manifesto of encouragement.)

What's giving you hope today?
I'm feeling: hopefulhopeful

Saturday afternoon, on an end-of-season you-pick blueberry expedition with old and new friends, while filling my bucket and dripping sweat in the hot sun, one of the women I'd just met offered me some of the cut watermelon she'd packed. After half-choking because I'd gobbled it down to fast, I said to her, "you know, life just doesn't get sweeter than this, does it?"
