January 25th Challenge: Plant a seed of love
So begins the obit of a woman whose life I will celebrate in community with her friends and family on Saturday afternoon.
In memory of Rosie, today's challenge is to put a little love and warmth into the world in any way you like that is strings-free.
Leave a tiny present in a public natural space. Make a temporary art piece a la Andy Goldsworthy or maybe just a fairy house in a tree root. Press a poem into a library book or a menu. Put a dollar in an envelope near a bakery with a note saying "Have a cookie". Donate some jigsaw puzzles to a nursing home.
