Good Karma

Three weeks ago I spent Sunday evening tracking down a guy who lost his wallet in a crosswalk at Constitution Avenue between the Washington Monument and the White House – and tonight two ladies from Georgia found my wallet on a trail in Fort Collins, and brought it to me. It apparently fell out of my pocket while I was riding, and I didn’t even know it was missing.

    The good life seems to follows if we:

    1. Just do the next right thing
    2. Without expecting the results

      I’ve noticed the same thing.

      You may appreciate Maya Angelou’s insight:
      “Each of us has lived through some devastation, some loneliness, some weather superstorm or spiritual superstorm. When we look at each other we must say, I understand. I understand how you feel because I have been there myself. We must support each other because each of us is more alike than we are unalike.”

      ― Maya Angelou

  2. The exact same misfortune happened to me in Kathmandu back in 1974, and I never carried a wallet in my back pocket since.

    Good thing you didn’t lose your wallet in Washington DC. There is a difference between the civility culture in Ft. Collins and that commonly found in DC.

    Now, just maybe, “Pay It Forward” does work. Loved that movie.

    Hi Stephen,
    I wanted to say a couple of things. First, you will always be Stephen to me, just as Mark Twain will always be Mark Twain. Nom de plumes can be sticky.

    Second, I nominated you for a climate data analysis project.
