Working for (small) change
Hello good people and welcome to the Tuesday early edition of Caucus 99 % open thread. The world may be going to hell in a hand basket, but nothing says we can't have fun with words and ideas.
There are invariably other discussions going on in the online community at this site, some probably started in the wee hours or leftovers from yesterday. Plenty of good content to feed the mind. And now something upbeat for your listening pleasure.
The title of this essay has a double meaning. To do good in this world we work for changing things for the better. It seems the results are small as compared to the multitude of maladies we face. Any little good is better than no good at all.
Another take might be the rewards we realize from working so hard is small change in the larger accounting of life. Little left to take to the bank. Although the effort expended has value. Then there is the character Tom Waits lamented in his "Small Change (got rained on with his own .38)". Might be too early to post that one here.
Well, let's see which way the winds of change are blowing today. Comments are open. Peace!
