You cannot change your destination overnight,
but you can change your direction overnight.

We owe it to the past to use its gains worthily
and to advance from the point at which it left off.
We owe it to the future
to prepare a generation better than ourselves.
We owe it to the present to ‘live’,
to live with all the expansion of heart and soul,
all reaching out of our personality
towards those relations appointed to us.
-Charlotte Mason, submitted by Judy A., Carbondale IL

Welcome to 2007! The new year always brings an opportunity for NEW DIRECTIONS, and that includes here at The Ripples Project! Below is a new section with content that used to be here in the PONDER area. Some times I have ended a PONDER with a challenge: “this week, try to….” Other times I have mentioned a book or website that might be worth a peek. The SPLASH section will appear occasionally to serve as a special home for these small actions that could make an immediate SPLASH in your life: call, visit, read, surf, experiment, etc. Try it, you may like it!

In the spirit of the new year and this week’s theme of NEW DIRECTIONS, I dare you to spend 5 minutes answering 5 questions at this quick retirement planner: http://www.Fidelity.com/MyPlan . * I know, some of you may feel you are too young to think about this….there are others here who wish someone would have nudged them to think about this earlier. If you find it useful, let me know!
Another splash to consider: would you like to meet other Ripply people? We are convening a Ripply Town Meeting on Sunday afternoon, January 21 here in Madison.
*This is not a paid advertisement, nor an endorsement of an organization. I just thought it had Ripply Potential and it is okay if you disagree!
