"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Deeds on the Road - Opening Doors

Today we headed out on another family trip; this one to the mountains for a ski vacation. Finding good deeds on the road can be a challenge when you spend most of the day five hours in the car. Still, we managed.

The project:
Opening doors. I find spending hours either driving or riding limited our contact with the Outside World. Still, we did stop for a pit stop, trudged back and forth through hotel doors to lug in our gear, and ventured out after The Game for dinner.


Why bother?
It's simple, easy, doesn't really put anyone out of their way and is almost always appreciated.

Worth it?
After having completed the task myself, it wasn't difficult to appreciate the benefit this small favor provided another traveler struggling with an overwhelming pile of winter wear
