Nancy Lamott: We Can Be Kind
Saturday, February 06, 2016
Just discovered Nancy Lamott -- and her iconic delivery of a great song, "We Can Be Kind".
The older I get, the more I value kindness. Way more important than intelligence or professional competence or wealth or a whole lotta other things! And it seems to me that one of the great strengths of Spark People is the kindness people show one another here. People do indeed walk the walk here.
Another great Lamott song? Everyone who's endured my joy in hyacinths and pileated woodpeckers and sparkly XC skis and all the small stuff which surrounds us free for the noticing will be able to anticipate that I also love her "Ordinary Miracles": Change begins with you and me. Each and every one of us lights a spark.
And there is, of course, nothing ordinary about the miracle of this Spark community!
How can I have missed the existence of this great singer? (1951-1995: RIP).
