Good afternoon to all,
Hope everyone is having a peaceful day today.
Don't forget that tonight I will be hosting the open mike for the first time at the Hearing Room in Lowell. Sign ups begin at 6:30 and acts start at seven. Come on down if you are in the area and support local art and live music. The Hearing Room is located at 119 Chelmsford St. in Historic Lowell Massachusetts.
I spent most of my morning running around taking care of those things you really don't feel like doing but they have to get done. No real fun, nothing exciting, just a journey through the mundane.
Tuesdays are good for that. They really hold little significance compared to all the other days of the week.
Think about it. Mondays get a lot of attention. They are usually hated, dreaded, and generally they are pretty unpopular. Wednesdays are Humpdays that magical halfway point through the workweek. Thursdays have actually become quite popular in recent years, sort of a premature start of the weekend for a lot of Thirsty people, , and of course the always Popular Thank God it's Fridays. As for Saturdays and Sundays well who can say anything bad about a day on the weekend except for maybe they seem to go by too quickly. But lowly Tuesday sits there wedged between Manic Monday and Humpday, about as far away from the weekend as you can get, Not much ever seems to happen on Tuesdays that is very significant. It's really just there. Twenty-four hours of "just let me get through this". Sometimes if a Tuesday is being difficult in any way people automatically will chalk it up to Monday overhang.
Tuesday needs and identity of it's own. From this point on I suggest that we make every Tuesday the weekly "Pay it Forward Day". Try to do something nice for someone on a Tuesday, something that would be unexpected. It doesn't have to be a big thing. You could bring someone coffee in the morning, or buy them lunch, just something to try and make someone's mundane Tuesday just a little better. Tell someone they look nice, or compliment them on their shoes, help them carry something heavy, or hold a door. Whatever it is, let's start making Tuesdays special. Afterall, today is the Present.
