May Day is Lei Day!

 but i'd rather be wearing beads around my neck.....

charity fair vibes are going strong as we head towards sunday...  I'm so pooped and it's always at this time, somewhere past midnight that we look at each other and say, "what the heck are we doing?"  and talk about synchronicity... my friend janet emails me an article that says the following: 

... human happiness derives neither from external validation nor solely from within, but from "between": through the relationships created by love, work, and "something larger than yourself" -- whether it's a religious group, a volunteer organization, or a political campaign.

"A lot of people seem to have learned through their experiences during the presidential campaign that being part of a community and making a difference -- even a small one -- is deeply satisfying. No matter how busy or stressed they are right now, volunteers report that they always feel better after taking a few hours to do something positive for their community along with a bunch of like-minded strangers. It has the effect of putting their own lives and problems into perspective."

Funny huh... when you ask a question, you get a answer.  I just so happen to like this one!
see you on sunday.. if not, buy a raffle ticket!
