Art, generosity and comfort

- Thanks to Clare, I am Postcrossing. I loved the card from Jude from rural China yesterday. It had a "farmer painting" on the front, which reminds me in concept of our American Folk Art.

- A friend's father passed away and his dentist told a story about him that was lovely. He used to carry silver dollars with him and leave them for someone as a special surprise. Example: he used to come in for dental hygiene visits and after he left, the hygienist would find a silver dollar in the chair he had been sitting in.

- It was comforting to come in from the rain to Trinity Presbyterian Church where smiling women had prepared sandwiches and fruit for our grant writing session.
