Immerse Yourself in MULU

Dense vegetation cling to every surface.
Steep slopes and vertical cliffs reach summitridges
before dropping to hidden valleys.
Jagged limestone pinnacles, bleached white,
pierce the lush green canopy.
Cave passages wind their way through
The mountains, opening into chambers
so large you are dwarfed to insignificance.

I took this out from READER'S DIGEST.

1. Buy an extra book and donate it to your child's classroom,
the local library or a refuge.

2. Next time you're craving something sweet, bake a double batch of

chocolate-chip biscuits and give some to a housebound neighbour or
overworked colleague.

3. Pick up litter on your way to the bus or the train in the morning.

4. Go the extra distance when someone goes out of her wayfor you.

Send a complimentary note to her supervisor, witha copy to the person
who helped you.

5. Next time you're in line at the supermarket with a loaded trolley,

be gracious. Let the person behind you - the one with single item - go
ahead of you.

6. Carry change to feed expired parking meters. (need to revise this -_-! )

7. Donate blood, and give the gift of life.

8. Offer to water the neighbours' plants while they're away on holiday.

9. Praise your children. Try to rise above the inevitable petty conflicts

that litter family life.

10. Be recklessly courteous and wildly polite: hold doors open. Thank

the bus driver, the coffee shop's counter person - all the service people
whose work makes life a little more livable.
