daily inspiration: make someone’s day (1 of 2)

Posted on: March 19, 2011

Some of my professional (e.g., business world) acquaintances know I’m also a theater professional, but don’t know what I do exactly. One of my ongoing projects is a one-man show on Jewish identity, In the Belly of the Whale.

When I debuted the show a few years ago in Boulder, Colorado, on the last night of the run, someone left a present for me on the set of show. I had been greeting people after it ended, and when I turned around, a wrapped gift sitting there, unlabeled. Upon opening it, I found a stained glass whale, that attached to a window with suction cup.

I never found out who gave it to me – but it still sits on my kitchen window, and makes me smile every time I look at it.

Action: Give an anonymous gift to someone in your life who you appreciate. They’ll never forget it. Plus, what you give, in one form or another, will come back to you.
