What's going on here?

I've made a commitment: to do one good deed per day. Large or small, it doesn't matter. Self-sacrificing or not, extraordinary or mundane, it doesn't matter. Just one thing every day, that's all.

The more I do good, the better I feel about myself. Truly, to benefit others is to benefit yourself. I hope this journal may inspire others who also yearn to do good. So join me on this journey, if you will, and think about the difference you can make in your own life.

Return of the trashmonk

Trashmonking is what I like to call walking around and picking up trash. When you get used to it, it's very calming and meditative--hence the monk aspect. I have this vision of one day leading a great procession of robed spiritualists, all of us chanting and picking up trash, leaving a swath of clean earth in our wake.

But for now I'm content just to leave a little trail of cleanliness behind myself.

I took a day-trip to Asahikawa today out of boredom. I think the sidewalks are glad I did.

ONE GOOD DEED: Clean up trash from the sidewalks of Asahikawa.
