Michigan Public Radio stations have been running a regular series called “3 Things” since January of this year. Lots of people have offered suggestions for a way to fix Michigan, a state experiencing great economic distress.
I was honored to be asked to offer my ideas and chose three that I thought everyone could do and that I am working on myself:
1. Build compassionate communities by getting to know your neighbors
2. Take a walk
3. Write your life story
You knew I had to add that last one, right? You rock, memoir writers!
You can hear the brief interview by clicking on this link.
Tonight, as Stuart and I returned from our bike outing after work, we saw a jogger carrying 5 bottles and cans picked up from the side of the road. We both cheered. I wondered whether she heard my interview.
Don’t mess with Michigan!
And I hope you enjoy these three ideas no matter where you live. Do you know your own neighbors? Have a neighbor story to share?
