Day 108

Today I learned that listening to music can yield empirically-supported health benefits, such as reducing anxiety among hospital patients and calming newborn babies.

Today I meditated for 20 minutes, a medley of music and mindfulness.

Today I acted kindly by writing friendly messages with chalk on the sidewalks in my neighborhood (at 5am, to be sneaky, and to be outside as the sun rose)… or as my dear friend H calls it, “vandalizing the sidewalks of our local park with compliments and positive encouragements”.

TODAY IS DAY 108 OF 108 DAYS! Stay tuned for my reflections about the project, which will be posted tomorrow, and THANK YOU for enriching this journey by joining along and caring at all… You are wonderful. Yes, you.

“I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try.”
Roger Ebert
