It’s a day after New Year’s great celebrations here on beautiful Oahu. The sky is blue. The ocean a magnificent emerald. In this last week of time here it's going to be important to squash in as much delight as possible.
I made the unfortunate mistake of turning on the TV news. Kim Jong Un is testing an intercontinental missile, so he’s spoiling for a fight. In 2016 there were more than 3500 shooting incidents, and 4500
So that was 2016, widely believed to be not a good year around the world. Lots of pop stars died. Music lovers grieve a lot over that. It's sort of like being on a music ship without a rudder, going into 2017. Murder and mayhem all over the world. Refugees scrambling, countries pushing back.
But there's always hope, and always folks ignoring the awful; instead making their own lives and immediate areas beautiful. Hopefully that modeling spreads.
- I’m going to smile and talk to a stranger at every opportunity. So watch out if you're in my area!
- I'm going to find out folks addresses, the SNAIL MAIL ones, so I can send a little card to some of them. They'll never know when it might happen! I'm hoping that might brighten the day when someone needs it.
Thanks for reading, thanks for supporting, thanks for your sweet tips! And may you continue to spread the love throughout your world in 2017!
