the breed’s on the decline. rapidly. i speak of the ones that can give with the slightest hint of ‘need’ or ‘want’, the ones that can give without expectations, and the ones that thrive on ‘giving’.
i speak of simpler stuff that our everydays are made of.
smile, a kind word, a thoughtful gesture, a moment to stop and enquire.
i speak more of the art of giving without being asked.
someone tells me it’s a sign of weakness – to show that you care, that you are capable of giving and that stopping to do so only reveals a vulnerable side.
then again, have you noticed how when one does ‘give’ – literally, palm over palm, just because we are a visual clan and visual cues almost always helps light those ways; the act of giving always hints of a larger heart, person, character?
