Timing is Everything

18 days of 26 days of kindness  
What makes something fit or feel right, taste perfect or just look like it is in the correct place? Timing, like a drum beat fitting into a song, well, it’s everything that makes it perfect with a capital ‘P’. It takes me to an archived post written two years ago in January titled ‘Nature’s Crescendo’. It touches upon the musical term, a crescendo and how this applies to nature and light; take a peek. But there is a flip side during this month of December. The amount of natural light we actually absorb decreases.

For many, this light deficiency makes December equally, if not more challenging as the middle of winter; the bitter month of January. Our natural ability to feel lighthearted is affected by sunlight and weather. These natural elements  determine our thoughts and our decisions. Candles and holiday lights become a large part of our December evenings to give us a lift in spirit. This imposed light weaves a certain rhythm into what is naturally occurring and keeps us moving full steam ahead. But even this can find us looking for more magic than these flickering bits of lighted hope can give.
As we start the 18th day of 26 days of kindness in honor of Avielle Richman, this collage of archived images hopefully lift these dark December days of decreasing natural light with a bit of magic. Nora Roberts penned it best. “Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”



Avielle Richman’s favorite color was red. She loved Harry Potter and took horseback riding lessons. She even tried archery after watching the Disney movie "Brave." In honor of Avielle, create some magical light where none might exist. This is the beauty of kindness. Timing is everything and today is the perfect day to give a piece of your light away. Take part in these 26 days of kindness. It is not too late. Here is the FB and event page
