Happy Post-Labor Day!

Believe it or not Labor Day has come and gone and we are left here wondering what happened to our summer? The good news is I recently heard about a new vegan restaurant that just opened in Watertown called "Red Lentil" - I will have an update for you soon on this!

Enjoy what is left of our summer and please share any kind living moments you may have!

Independence Day 2009

Happy Independence Day!

This independence day I am giving thanks for all that I have including the freedom of being an American citizen. I am grateful to all the friends I have, my support system, my family, my health, and all the intangible gifts I have been given in this world. I realize this isn't new year's day but I feel that this is a new beginning and a time to really put out my best in this world and reach out to others who share a desire to make this world a better place. I am hoping to attract more members to this blog and hope that others will share in their experiences of bringing more light and happiness here. A lot has changed in the short time that I have had this Kind Living blog. It is my intention that the changes that are occurring will bring me more into alignment with others and my source and that together we can make changes that bring peace to all living beings.

I was supposed to be in Boston this weekend to celebrate the holiday but circumstances made it impossible for me to leave NY so enjoy the pictures I posted above of the celebration on the esplanade and the beautiful fireworks bursting over the Charles River - Happy Independence Day to everyone!

Give to the Humane Society and Have your Company Match the Donation - Check the Matching List to see if your company is on it!!! A great way to give!

The Humane Society is a wonderful organization that helps LOTS of animals. I just found out that if you donate some money to them your company may match it. They have a company matching list - just enter your company name and if your company is on the list, they will match your contribution!! This is a kind Living opportunity for all of us.

Lenten Organ Recital - A piece to remember

This past Sunday, I was fortunate to hear a beautiful concert at Grace Church in Brooklyn Heights. The concert was a Lenten Organ recital and the organist was Dr. William F. Entriken of the First Presbyterian Church in Manhattan. He performed 5 beautiful pieces, one of which I have posted below for your listening pleasure. The piece is Johann Sebastian Bach's "Prelude and Fugue in A minor, BMV 543"
This Youtube version is played by the masterful Virgil Fox. This song makes my heart sing - I hope you enjoy it.

Kind living Moment of the Day - A seat made for me on the Train

Just to remind myself that there are always kind moments even if we can't see them, I am posting one moment today that represented a kind living moment - a moment that I could easily forget if I let myself. Two people squished over on the train this morning so I could have a seat. It was very kind and may seem insignificant but it meant a lot to me. Do any of you have kind moments that you would like to share? I believe that remembering and sharing the kind acts in our lives enable us to create more of them.

Be Kind to Animals - Adopt one of the many homeless Pets

There are so many homeless animals now because so many people are losing their homes. Dogs and cats and other animals need homes now. I have often heard people say that they aren't home enough to give a cat a home but a cat would much rather be in a warm house alone all day with a nice sunny window sill then in a shelter crammed full of hundreds of cats feeling hopeless. Cats don't need and often don't want a lot of attention. They are usually happy to know someone loves them enough to feed them and give them a nice home to sleep the days away and play. Please consider adopting a pet now. You will be happy too with a loving pet in your life.

Please encourage those you know to adopt a homeless pet and not to breed or purchase a pet from a pet store. Pet stores profit from breeding pets and breeders continue to breed animals despite the millions of homeless pets in shelters waiting desperately to be rescued.

Thank you.
