i started a 'curl in and relax' book.....
it's called 'a secret gift' -
the guy is writing about his grandfather who gave secret donations
out in the depression. i haven't gotten very far yet, but i'm looking
forward to this one.
this hit me a lot and i wanted to share......
he's kinda mixing back then's depression with our economy now.
mixing the greed of both times, the government bail outs....all that.......
'But it was the smallness of B.Virdot's gift - a mere five dollars -
that was its magic, not an act of governmental grandiosity but
a gesture of human compassion.....'
'It was precisely that, it's puniness and its purity, which gave it its
trans formative power, then and now. it was too small to put even
a dent in the Great Depression but just enough to fend off the sense
that no one cared and nothing could be done. For one moment, in
one forgotten town, one man managed to shrink the vastness of the
Depression to a human scale.'
i thought it was something to really hold........
about the light we bring into the world........
and i wanted to share.......
