Time for Giving…

Having spent months on the beaches of Thailand and Malaysia I can’t even begin to fathom the tragedy unfolding. Most of the population got by on dollars a day and now, nothing. If you can, give something. Our donations went to Doctors Without Borders.

Kahlil Gibran said it best:-

And there are those who
have little and give it all.
These are the believers in life
and the bounty of life,
and their coffer is never empty.

There are those who
give with joy,
and that joy
is their reward.

And there are those who
give with pain,
and that pain
is their baptism.

And there are those who
give and know
not pain in their giving,
nor do they seek joy,
nor give
mindfulness of virtue;
they give as in yonder valley
the myrtle breathes
its fragrance into space,
through the hands
of such as these
God speaks,
and from behind their eyes
he smiles upon the Earth.
