If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.

Love the earth and sun and animals,
Despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks,
Stand up for the stupid and crazy,
Devote your income and labor to others…
And your very flesh shall be a great poem.
-Walt Whitman, submitted by Cindy K, Green Bay WI

It was a joy to hang out with them last week!

This weekend a beautiful blanket of snow settled on Madison. It may have limited our Ripply town meeting to four happy souls, but it was great fun to chat about The Ripples Project and similar efforts underway to create a community of positive-acting folks. I hope to implement some of the ideas we generated within the next few months, so watch for more Ripply Potential!
Regarding this week’s theme: if The Ripples Project is a poem, YOU are the lines. So here is a dare: go out there, take your gifts and share, show the world you care!
