Day 103

Today I learned that the reason people are either right-handed or left-handed, and that more people are right-handed, is not known for certain but is likely due to genetics.

Today I meditated for 15 minutes. (Bonus! Check out why doctors are prescribing meditation to complement, but not replace, traditional treatment here.)

Today I acted kindly by having tea with Joan, Marilyn, Audrey, and Velma at the local seniors’ residence. We recited poetry together (no joke) and exchanged stories. But mostly I listened to their stories of traveling far away and coming back home, stories of university, of friends and husbands passed away, of iPads, hitchhiking, and knitting… so that I am not sure if this was my act of kindness or theirs.

“You give but a little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”

-Kahlil Gibran
