Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It’s almost done, this week we have the 17th Ity (of 18) and so we have to do only the last Ity. As I started with this weekly haiku-meme … I thought I can do it… and yes I did, but it is to much work. So I have decided to make Carpe Diem Tackle It Tuesday a bi-weekly meme. That bi-weekly sequens starts with this week’s prompt “generosity” … so I will post our next episode, purity, around December 23rd. I hope this little change will give you all more time to respond and for me it brings a little bit of rest and peace.

Ok … back to our prompt for this week,  generosity. And this is what Sivananda says about “generosity”:  In whatever you give be liberal. Have a large heart. Do not be miserly. Take delight in the joy of others, in making them happy. Generosity is a sister-virtue of charity. It is the fulfillment of charity, magnanimity and nobility.

Generosity will give you happiness and joy … so be generous … it will give you a lot to be grateful for.
