I read a very sweet thing the other day. The wonderfully talented comedian, author and musician Steve Martin was quoted as saying one of the many things he loves about his wife, Anne Springfield, is that she’s a genuinely kind person.
Kindness. What a concept.
Also with us is the North Carolina-based duo, Mandolin Orange. These two young talented musical collaborators are reaping great press and earning an ever-increasing number of fans wherever they play (I’m now officially one of them). They’re also very nice – some might even say kind (there’s that theme again). And smart. And funny. Keep an ear and an eye for them, including tuning into (or podcasting) eTown this week.
It’s great music as always, plus an eChievement Award story about a woman keeping office supplies out of the landfill and getting them into the hands of teachers whose students desperately need them but cannot afford them.
As you might imagine, she does this largely out of the kindness of her heart.
