Kind Services of Life

Doing a kind service for someone always warms one’s heart. Do you have a story, picture, poem, or prose to share Which tells of a kindness that someone has done for another? Perhaps someone has helped paint an elderly person’s home. Have you seen someone take a dinner in to someone who is ill? Perhaps one has done swash or house cleaning for someone out of the kindness of their heart?

This is your time to share with your Bookmooch friends Your stories of kind services rendered or witnessed. All I ask is not to change anyone’s work, write over it, or cover it up. Keep within the two week time limit, and then post it to have some one else mooch it.

The Little Book of Surprising Strangers

This journal is a challenge. I would like you to (pleasantly) surprise one (or more!) random strangers in a public place.

Maybe the older lady in front of you at the cinema has really beautiful eyes- tap her on the shoulder and share your compliment. Someone sitting on a park bench reading a book? Buy them a coke and wish them a good day. This challenge is limited only by your imagination- you could say it’s a Little Book that hopes to inspire some good deeds, keeping in mind that brightening someone’s day by complimenting their outfit can brighten their day and surprise them so much that it can counteract a supremely bad day.

You can write about your experience and as always feel free to even draw something to illustrate it, but personally I got the people I approached to write a little line in the book, simply explaining that the journal was a project I was working on, but not its connection to my random comment/act.

When full, please return to Snofferol.
