More Fun

Bob Thurman says compassion is more fun.

And, sometimes, I think, the same goes for turning the lights off when you leave a room.

And eating cookies that don't have corn syrup in them.

And walking a block out of your way to give your broken bike business to a mechanic that makes you smile.

And yet the fun is still a secret. Even, sometimes, to those of us that think we know about it.

People still say the reason they recycle is peer pressure. And I still drive a car and use a dryer and buy things from big companies that I'm not excited to support.

So.

How do we share the fun, or the Kool-Aid, or whatever it is that makes it easy to turn around and walk back into that room and hitting that lightswitch? With the peer pressure people? With the people immune to the peer pressure? With the people without pressuring peers? And with ourselves, always?
