“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am grateful for another afternoon to be of service to the community.

Today, we sorted out and bagged 9,000 pounds of clementines (although, some oranges snuck in to the party!). It was refreshing to smell beautiful citrus as we worked.

Did you know that smelling the rinds of oranges make you feel happy? The clementines added more sweetness and cutieness to the mix.

The volunteer name tag ball has been growing for over 14 months, and the wall of t-shirts represents most of the volunteers from several Bay Area companies. My company sports red shirts.

It was a great day! I’m off to dinner with friends, followed by a painting event.
