HUMP day thoughtful

Hi friends!

Today is a day of memory as well as hope. An early text from my favorite New Yorker reminded me to light a candle and feel the pulse of life in all things. That early downpour of rain, the scent of lingering summer, the flickering flame. Our loved ones.

Here is a mix of some interesting reads in cyberland:

Do something nice for someone today, maybe a stranger, a random act of kindness. Let it surprise you, the way an unexpected gift might. Be gentle with yourself. Don different colored shades. Giggle often- laughter truly is the best medicine.
