1. Learning that the citizens of my city donated over 27,000 (!) hours last year filling various roles for community events and tasks – which translates into over $578,000 of value. Incredible! And today I got to help add to that number for 2012. Wonderful.
2. Seeing many families attend a fine-arts fair this afternoon. I love that parents are introducing their children to the arts at such young ages – fantastic!
3. Meeting a very cool woman during the fine-arts fair. Even though there are three decades between us, we found common ground in writing/blogging, and were quickly sharing parts of our stories with each other. The conversation energized me – and hearing how much life this woman has lived thrilled me. I hope I’m that keen in my later years!
