funny how circular things can be.
After work Friday and went to my hairdresser's house for a haircut. I told her how her support had always been so meaningful to me, and that her unflagging encouragement had helped me find hope in some difficult moments.
Then I went to Fort Worth to a party for a couple I know who are getting married in 2 weeks. The friend who hosted the party, A, pulled me aside and said that 5 years ago when we met, she felt unworthy to pursue a career in the arts, but that my encouragement was what inspired her to go back to school to pursue her degree so she might one day become an art teacher.
That was really nice, the feeling that a spirit of positive support can be something that regulates a social circulatory system. Nice to be a small part of such a thing.
