“The best blush in the world is a sip of champagne” – Megan Washington

I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.

When I sit down to write a book, I don’t ask myself, ‘How many am I going to sell?’ When I get on the dance floor, my purpose in being on the dance floor is not to end up at another spot when the music stops. The purpose of the dance is to enjoy every step along the way. When I go to a music concert, I don’t say, ‘My purpose is to get to the end and enjoy the finale.’ If that were the purpose, everybody would write finales and nothing more. The purpose of the concert is to enjoy each note as you go along.
