Dingo Love: Kind

Love is Kind

Love is Kind

Once upon a time The Dingo decided to teach little Max about what it means to be kind. Max had some very good habits that were instilled on him at a very young age like saying “please” & “thank you,” but The Dingo wanted to be sure that the little guy understood why these habits and many more like it, were so important.

First things first, The Dingo wanted to show Max the definition of the word “kind” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary. So they both read it out loud together:

  • : having or showing a gentle nature and a desire to help others : wanting and liking to do good things and to bring happiness to others

According to the definition, being kind is about showing others you care for their happiness. It’s also about putting aside our own needs and desires so we may be more sensitive on how we may better serve others around us. More importantly, we have to make sure that all this is coming from a good place in our hearts and not being done for selfish reasons.

The Dingo went on to explain that the main reason we practice good manners, like saying “please” and “thank you,” is so that we can show our heart to those around us. Saying “please” shows that what we are asking for is a request and not a demand and saying “thank you” shows that we are grateful for what was given to us. While our words are important, it’s equally important that we also focus on our actions by finding ways that we can bless others with our service. It could be helping our parents with various chores or even finding ways to give back to our community.

Little Max was excited about what he had just learned and he couldn’t wait to get started. He even went as far as drawing some pictures of himself participating in random acts of kindness like picking up litter, raking the leaves, and he even had a picture of himself donating food to the local food drive.

Knowing that the possibilities of kindness were endless, The Dingo got that warm & fuzzy feeling knowing that the kindness of one can impact many and seeing that Max had just jumped onto the kindness wagon meant that many more people were going to be feeling the love and this made The Dingo very happy.

Walk in Love.

OPERATION: Bring Art to the People- My Birthday Edition & More…

February 1st, 2013, was my birthday and it also happened to be Free Art Friday (woo hoo!) So I celebrated this momentous occasion with some very special Art Drops.

My day started at Metro Diner in historic San Marco where I got treated to the most decadent biscuits and gravy this side of the Mississippi and I tried a new dish called the JAX Hash which was just as equally yummy. As a thank you for my amazing breakfast dining experience, I shared some Free Art Love :)

As a thank you for my amazing breakfast dining experience, I shared some Free Art Love in the form of my 2013 YCL Art Childhood Series Calendar 🙂

Next, I saw a great opportunity to leave one of my favorite pieces called "Bath-time" a 30"x40" acrylic on canvas painting by this beautiful statue of a sailor located on the Southbank of the Riverwalk by the Strand.

This Birthday Art Drop happened on the Southbank Riverwalk by the Main St. Bridge

And finally, the day would not be complete if I didn’t share some Dingo Loves Jax love in the form of this 2013 Calendar. This drop was also done on the Southbank Riverwalk.

But that’s not all. In case you missed all the free art love that got shared during the month of January, be sure to take a look at the gallery below and if you feel inclined to help support this effort to Bring Art to the People, be sure to click the Donate button to the top right of your screen.
