RAVE To Ellen, the kind stranger who witnessed me ‘”kissing the concrete” after tripping over a large root growing up through the sidewalk. She approached my husband, our dogs and me, identifying herself as a “first responder” and offering her services, and I accepted her helpful offer to drive me to wherever I needed to go. I’m still sore and healing a broken rib, but Ellen’s kindness makes it easier to smile.
RANT To political candidates and issue supporters who plaster public property with campaign signs and then fail to retrieve them, win or lose, after Election Day.
