It’s almost March. And as my late father used to say, “She comes in like a Lyon and goes out like a pussycat.” Like so many other simple things he said to me, many of them far more profound than this, I’ll always remember it. The promise of spring is close. I can feel it in the subtle beam of sunlight bursting through the ash flash workshop window this morning. The increased proximity to the sun in late February is always enticing. Like a donut after church. As always I continue my work for you here on the ash flash, cultivating the slight edge, and as I reviewed one of my note books while icing my back in preparation for a workout, I thought this quote made sense for a Sunday…
“Sometimes it only takes a stranger in a dark place to make us warm in the coldest season.” -Neil Gaiman
Remember, the effect of uncalculated kindness, or service, or passion is always profound and far reaching.
