Time is a circle.
There’s a ghost on the corner of 3rd and Broadway I noticed him the other day, as I made a left turn at the light. He wasn’t there a week ago. He must be new. Nobody I recognize, but then again, his face is blurry and indistinct. I look at him now, and I drive past. 1/

#Denver lost some of its best this week. These artists, teachers, healers, good humans, gone too soon in an act of unimaginable violence + hatred. Ways to help if you can. Huge thanks to the amazing local journalists, too, telling their remarkable stories of life and community.

Give to @waterforpeople before 31 December and your donation is matched!#WaterIsTheReason 💧Thank you @CarylonCorp!
Water is the reason Simon is smiling. Now that a water point is just a few steps away from his home, his family can wash their hands any time. Another reason to smile? Thanks to @CarylonCorp, all donations are matched up to $45,000 total through Dec 31! give.waterforpeople.org/page…

Happy Christmas from us. Making the best of our isolated Christmas with a mild breakthrough case in the house and awaiting further test results, but not wanting to expose anyone. 🎄#ForcedFamilyFun

A systemic failure on so many levels. In one of the wealthiest countries on the planet. Its shameful this exists anywhere, but not a surprise. We must do better #Alabama #WASHTwitter #LowndesCounty @eji_org #ToiletsAreAHumanRight

There are so many parts of this to love. Giving feels good - no matter what kind; words matter; handing over the mic matters - rather than speaking "for"/on behalf of. This kind of philosophy is where all philanthropy must head. Thanks for leading the way @mackenziescott
What’s getting left out? Please spread the word about the giving no one is talking about in your community. bit.ly/3IIWqoL
