The rumblings, mumblings and grumblings of a vagrant and yet (I hope) vibrant mind. My takes on the places, people, movies, books and events which moved me.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
Pizza Delivery girls for Domino's do not have some close relationship with the people who order Pizzas. They probably don't even remember them. So, when delivery girl Susan realized that a particular elder woman had mysteriously stopped ordering pizzas. What reason, did she even have to notice? Maybe somebody opened a Pizza Hut nearby. Maybe the lady stopped eating Pizzas.
But on a hunch, Susan drove out to the lady's house. She banged on the door. No answer. She banged on a window. Nothing. Finally she got a neighbor to call 911.
Stop and think about how foolish she would have looked if she were wrong here. Maybe the lady was just on vacation, maybe she had just run out to the store, maybe she would be furious that a stupid pizza delivery driver was nosing into her business. But when the cops came and forced the door, there was the old lady, lying where she had fallen three days earlier, unable to get to a phone.
No one else had checked on her, and no one else was going to. Except for pizza delivery woman Susan who had every right in the world to just shrug and go on with her day.
This blog is a journey in search of the person I want to be. I am not there yet and do not even know if I am getting there.I like travelling, eating, cooking, procrastinating and doing nothing. Trusted companions me, myself, a book , a movie or a music CD.
