Coupon Clipper

 I’ve never been a coupon clipper but when I see a poem or a story or riff, a quote, that I think someone I know or love would like I will send it along; not to teach or admonish or show off or rub anyone’s nose in anything.  Just to share. I read a Humans of New York post the other day about a vibrant, active woman in her 90’s. She said she had a boyfriend. She didn’t even know how old he was. But they exchanged books!  Maybe that’s an act  of love. A spiritual act. An act of kindness and joy. Maybe it’s just what I do. Like this email, which I’ll share with you.
