Kindness and Carabiners

Myself, sitting outside and wearing a Yankees baseball shirt and sunglasses, smiling. Logo in white in the bottom left corner. When I wrote my first Kindness post, I definitely did not anticipate that I'd get to write another one. Cynical? Maybe. Little faith in other humans? A bit dramatic. Realistic? Totally.
