Sorry about my absence. And I don’t really have much to say on my own. But I want to direct your attention to LJ friend Mark‘s post this week, Making a Difference…. Another title could be “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Even if the presidential election had turned out differently, so many organizations working on worthy causes are and will continue to be hamstrung by not having enough people to work on their efforts and issues. Money helps, but they need helping hands.

I’m bad at this aspect. There are so many things to work on in the world, in the country, in my home town. But I’ve been no help. I hate to drop a “should” on myself, but … well, I have some thinking to do.

If you work for a company of moderate size or larger, you might want to see if they’ll support your efforts with paid time off for you to work with a charity or other group.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
