January 25th Challenge: Plant a seed of love

"Once in a lifetime, a gal like Rosie comes along: breezy warmth, wild humor, tack-sharp intelligence, all underpinned by a deep love of life and the people she met along her way."
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. 
natural art piece-- something grand ala
