Before You Know What Kindness Really Is

 This came to me through a string of friends sharing poetry on facebook....just about the best use of facebook I have encountered yet! a very timely poem to read at 6:10 in the morning after rising hours earlier in the dark, unable to sleep for the anxious worry fear thoughts banging in my head......"then it is only kindness that makes sense anymore."  Life looks better with the eyes open. Laundry folded with love is healing. I heard you read, Naomi, on Martha's Vineyard 2 summers ago and you speak to my life heart mind experience.  Thank you gifted one for having the courage to share it.  Blessings, fae-kontje-gibbs
