Lindsay invited me in to 29gifts.org a few days ago and now I have to strategically go about my day because I've committed to giving something away every day for 29 days. Here's the thing:I'm already graced in the art of givery. Before I moved to Oak Park, I used to drive here on Sunday mornings to go to Unity-not the Temple-the Church.
One of the sermons that stuck in my head was when the minister told us all about how he remembered being afraid to give. I remember thinking, what's he talking about? How'm I gonna give anybody anything when I am so lacking in glamorous merchandise?
T'wasn't the point. The point was to remove your head from your arse and broaden your focus (interplanetarily speaking).
Oh. That I understood.
Things flow through my house like nobody's business. I am surrounded by people who are already active participants in this process so I'm continually in the state of rotating my stock and that is fine by me. It's like living in a cornacopia or something.
I got today's idea a long time ago-when I realized that friends who had left New York were suffering without Fall. I have one California friend left out there that I'm in loose touch with and today we were strolling along and this tiny canvas executed by a guest artist beyond the realm of my capabilities is going straight into the mailbox for her.
