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.

PET bottles at the seashore

Sit down by the planks and rocks at the seashore behind the sports center, and wait a minute or two. At first you'll see just muddy water, but after a few minutes things will start to crawl about. Bottom-feeder fish, crabs, and little shrimp-like creatures, acclimated to your presence, will come out to bask in the shallow, sunlight-warmed water. Life teems at your feet.

And what better way to acknowledge this tiny miracle than to clean up the area a little?

ONE GOOD DEED: Pick up PET bottles near the seashore.


  1. i thought of your blog the other day while i was at the park... there was a bunch of beer cans and litter in an area. Your blog influenced me to walk across and pick it up, so thanks for the inspiration. The work of one multiplies through others. :)
