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.

Trash in Dad's Woods

A retired forester took my friends and I to a place he calls "Dad's Woods." It's a picturesque area deep in the forested hills of this part of Hokkaido. There we picked wild vegetables and mushrooms and took them home for a delicious sukiyaki lunch. I hauled away a bag of trash. It's amazing--so deep in the woods, you wouldn't think there would be much garbage. But so deep in the woods, there are few to pick up what's there. So it stays till you come along.

ONE GOOD DEED: Pick up trash in Dad's Woods.
