Feasting on Kindness
September 26, 2021

In a past post, I mentioned our evening at The Feast of Lanterns in Woodruff Place, referring to it as artsy and fun and inspiring.

It was fun because it was new and different and we spent time with friends, Art and Toni. It was an opportunity to visit booths of local artists. Kids were running about and swinging on swings, a band was playing, people were eating food-truck food, drinking Indiana craft beers, and chatting with neighbors. There was happiness in the air. And creativity. And connection. It felt good.

I was drawn to a booth where I saw a “Kindness Counts” tee shirt displayed. Two young women exuded enthusiasm for their wares and for the notion that buying one of their shirts was helping the program, “Women Supporting Women.” I bought one. You can buy your own tee or watch the video explaining the program here:

In another booth, I bought cool greeting cards from Meagan Wilson, I love sending old-fashioned paper greeting cards and when I can buy them from the creator, I do.

Why do I think this is important enough to write about? Because kindness counts, as does connection. Because I believe neighborhood events, supporting the arts and female entrepreneurs, and shopping/eating local will go a long way toward fixing what ails us. There’s much fodder for concern today. Much to be angry about or fear. But there’s also plenty about which to be proud, and when I have an opportunity to highlight those things, I think I will.

The Universe is guiding me on an incredible adventure: my Plan B. I write here to share bits of my Odyssey, hopefully to inspire, encourage, or extend the virtual hand of friendship.

When I quit teaching in 2014, I could never have imagined the growth I would experience through travel, writing, reading, therapy, and introspection.

I believe human connection and compassion will go a long way toward our healing, and the best way to connect and feel compassion for one another is through the sharing of our stories.

Thank you for joining me here. I appreciate you and may we grow together.
