Random acts of kindness project: Explanation

Hello everyone,

This being the anniversary of 911, I’ve taken a request from a Facebook friend and expanded it. Now as you know daily blogging is difficult for me, but I am up for this challenge:

She asked us in honor of this day to do an act of kindness for a stranger.

I have vowed to do this for one month.
From 9/11 to 10/11.

I will post these acts here not for praise or accolades, but to inspire readers to pay it forward. If you would like to share your own inspirations, please do so!


No this isn’t my micro fiction piece, just a little poem inspired by fog on a lake and my longing to be suspended in it.


It came over me when I fell asleep in your arms.

White vapor, softening reality
Until all was gone.

I feel your strength and know I’m safe drifting in the vapor.

Will this fade from me? Or will it blow away with the breeze?

Will the sun’s hot rays punch a hole in this serenity? Nothing lasts forever…

can it?
