"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

Drive Kindly

The project:
While driving the 200 miles home today from our jaunt north, I took every opportunity to wave in other motorists, make plenty of room for merging folks, open spaces for truckers.


Why bother?
Why not?

Worth it?
Absolutely. Plus, the effort made the drive much more relaxing, thanks in no small part to the warm feeling others' waves of gratitude provided.
