Random? Or not-so-random? Does it matter?

The Artdog Quote of the Week

Yes, it’s late: not Sunday night/Monday. I’m sorry. Weird week–and one in which the occasional random act of kindness would not have gone amiss. We all need them.

It’s true the random ones are unexpected blessings at unanticipated times. It’s also true they can make the world a better place.

Perhaps you’ve noticed, though: random gets harder to do, if you commit to a daily repeat. Random tends to fall into patterns, when we’re not a computer set on “randomize” (Actually, even computers set on “randomize” eventually fall into patterns, or so I’m told).

Is falling into patterns bad? Not really. Any effort to spread kindness in the world has its heart in the right place–and your patterns can tell you things about yourself, such as: what are my passions? My favorite causes? My calling?

Knowing those things about yourself is never a bad idea, either. And prepared acts of kindness? 

Well, what do you think?
