be kind


It’s been an emotional week and I can’t quite bring myself to share the usual, relatively trivial fare, that is this space.

That’s ok, there is a place for the trivial but I just feel that now is not that place.

I deliberately stayed away yesterday not only because of the tragic way events unfolded in Sydney but also because my own community faced its own threat from fires.

So today, a simple remind to be kind. To “throw kindness around like confetti” and remember to be kind because “everyone you meet is fighting their own battle”.

Never underestimate the power of a little human kindness.

I’m not quite sure when author John Le Carre would have said these words of wisdom.

He is now in his 80s and still writing novels, has a Twitter presence and an official Facebook fan group but says “I hate the telephone. I can’t type. I ply my trade by hand. I live on a Cornish cliff and hate cities”.

I find a touch of irony in his words, particularly for me as I spend much of my days at a desk and unlike Le Carre, don’t have my years as a spy to draw on.

But what resonated with me in these words is how easily it could be updated to be “From behind a keyboard …”

Take from it what you will ~ I think it has many interpretations ~ but it’s also a good reminder to get out from behind the desk/keyboard occasionally.

In keeping with the season, let me start by saying thank you for all being here, for liking the Lime Lane Facebook page, or perhaps following on Twitter, for just being part of the Lime Lane community.

And a happy Thanksgiving and holiday weekend to my friends in the US.

I’m enjoying something of a long weekend here myself this weekend after a mammoth day at work yesterday. I came home late, after a community Christmas event, to a little pranking and Christmas cheer from the family. They had pre-empted the weekend’s plans by starting on the Christmas tree and decorations and the Mr and I have some Christmas shopping plans today.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

May your weekend be merry and bright – with a little zesty reading thrown in!
