This is one of my favorite pictures ever. It’s from a few years back and it was taken using the PhotoBooth feature on our home computer back then, a Mac. There are many things I like about it, from the loving affection being shown in me planting a smooch on Melinda’s cheek, to Melinda’s smile, to the prominent place of her wedding ring, to Ella’s presence, and her somewhat silly face. The only thing this photo is missing is Chloe.
I went looking for it earlier as I wanted to use it to illustrate a short bio page I’ve created of me to go along with a kindness activity I’m in the process of creating. Something called the Compassion Games is starting in Seattle on Friday and I’ve been asked to get involved with a kindness-related activity. I thought it might be fun to have a series of kindness missions, one each week for the month-long duration of the games. Phrasing a kindness action as a mission gives it a game-like feel, right?
Shhh, you can get a sneak peek at that bio page here.
