Where standing: Our group will reconvene this year in the garden of my new home. Lots of little ones come and join in eagerly. The usual agreement at the end of the 5 minutes is "Oh, I wish we could have stood for longer" but then the buffet food comes out and we party together in thoughtfulness, unity and love. It's a beautiful event and, when I couldn't do it for a couple of years, it was much missed. Glad to be back! Blessings on everyone, everywhere.
The good emerging: I see kindness everywhere, every day. It's even cropping up in our advertising in the UK. A building society's ads talk about "the currency of kindness", and our animal charity, RSPCA is now encouraging kindness to name but two examples of mainstream shifts in thinking. How wonderful. We aren't called HumanKIND for nothing, it was always meant to be this way. Bless your life with kindness, given and received.
