Spread the Ripple

Encouragement and Laughter in an Unexpected Place

The kindness of strangers

A rock with “Well apparently rock bottom has a basement” written in white paint.
Photo by the author — rock by an unknown person

About a month ago, while walking my dog, a rock caught my eye. It was lightly painted and blended in well with the landscape.

It had an Emily Dickinson quote, “I dwell in possibility”, painted on it. The rock was an unexpected find that made me smile, so I took a photo and left it for others to enjoy.




We spread the ripple of kindness. This is the place for stories on kindness. Let kindness be your superpower.
