Ripples v10.51: Scattering! (Dec 22, 2008)
The Ripples Project is a tribe of 21,274
who believe tiny actions create big possibilities
It’s not what you gather but what you scatter
that tells what kind of life you have lived!
-Helen Walton, submitted by Carol C., Elmira NY
There’s more, much more, to Christmas
Than candlelight and cheer;
It’s the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all year.
It’s thoughtfulness and kindness,
It’s hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding,
And for goodwill to men!

Whether you are gathering with family/friends or celebrating solo, I hope you are able to scatter some “thoughtfulness and kindness” to those you encounter this week. Happy Solstice, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, and indeed Happy Christmas to you too!
p.s. No Ripples next week; we will see you in 2009
