"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

Opening Doors

The project:
Hold open the library door for a book donor heavily laden with titles.

A minute or so.

Why bother?
I was heading in, but saw this man with a large box overflowing with books headed for the donation pile. Clearly, he didn't have a free hand to open the door, so I held it for him.

Worth it?
Yes, particularly when I got that look of surprise, relief and his word of thanks.
