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

This evening I was playing WoW, like I often do, and I had such a good time goofing around with everyone.

There was much laughter and silliness as this group of us, from all walks of life with only this one thing in common, and there almost always is.

It gives me hope to see that all of us, who are so different, can be together peacefully and happily, and not let our sexuality or religion or upbringing or political views or any of that nonsense get in the way of just having a good time together.
