Just one little kind word ........ You never know...
You never know where just one little tiny kind word of kindness can take you. We all need them, its a form of recognition and praise, it shows that we're really needed ......... and its so often missed out and missing from our lives.
So what sparked this off? I just happened to be reading an obituary to Alex Soria of The Nils. Who? Alex Soria died last Monday aged 39 as reported in the Montreal Gazette, and also at The Rock and Roll Report and is remembered by Mark because of a single throwaway comment from Alex which was "Hey, you should play the drums, you have natural rythym".
And that single comment changed Mark's life by encouraging him to learn to play the drums and thereby fostering a love of music which has given him a lot of pleasure.
When did you last receive a small word of kindness? And more to the point, when did you last give a kind word? You can't remember! That long ago huh? :) Maybe you've got some catching up to do? And maybe I'm taking this all too seriously :))))
And I can't finish better than by quoting Mark again As we approach Christmas this year, never underestimate the power that music and a kind word can have on a total stranger.
