A couple of years ago I took a seasonal job in Berkeley, California. Like most things, I love diving right into the adventure without sorting out all the details ahead of time. In this case, I arrived with the job lined up, but not the housing. Being only a summer gig, I felt that if … Continue reading The Radiance of Giving
I'm concerned. I'm concerned because I'm one that gets all sorts of feels for the general well-being of others.
