Letter to the editor: Act of kindness brightens library
What are the bright colors in the Ilsley Library garden?
The leaves are fallen and the flowers gone, but there are bright shiny colors all around.
Walking in I see them — shining bright painted rocks in every color everywhere; on the benches, paths, stepping stones, stumps and birdbath, in among the plants and tress and shrubs, around the big tree and in secret corners. There are hearts and stars, circles and rainbows and suns, moons and fireworks. They say “You are Awesome!” “Love the Earth,” “Be Happy,” “Thank You!” “We Love you!”
I am delighted. I tell others who tell others who tell me back until many people have seen these messages of joy and goodness for themselves. They make us all stop, look and be happy. Who made them? Where did they come from?
A friend says they are from “The Undercover Kindness Agents.”
Hooray for the Undercover Kindness Agents! Thank you from all of us. You have warmed our hearts and made us happy. You remind us, too, to be kind and caring ourselves
I wrote this before the recent snow and the stones are now covered in white stuff, but they will reappear after a thaw, just as bright as ever.
