29 Gifts

Have you heard of this? The giving of 29 gifts is, purportedly, an African ritual created to ease a need. A need for what? Anything, I guess. I've done this challenge informally many times. Giving is getting, really. A kind word returns a smile. A need met returns a sense of community. (Go ahead, roll your eyes.)

So. Whaddya need? What have you got to give? Be creative, be generous. Be honest about what you have, what you really NEED to have, and what could serve a better purpose in someone else's life. Do it. Join me - what have you got to lose?

I have a variety of things I can give to someone else.

This is neat. I'll have to look into it. Realistically, I have far more than I "need", enough to last far beyond my death.
