Splash du Jour: Monday

Interesting to see how generosity itself…. varies according to the situation and the circumstances, with our frame of mind and mood at the moment. Generosity, if you will forgive the comparison, is like a piece of elastic. It stretches, contracts, is capable of embracing all humanity or the selfish individual who only knows how to be generous with himself. However, an act of charity is always good for the soul.

-- Jose Saramago, in The History of the Siege of Lisbon

The above quotation [which I have self-punctuated] is from the current novel I am reading, and reminded me of a former writing of mine, on the topic of BEGGING.

Have a great Monday!
