It’s been a while and a great deal has happened since I decided to record something for you – Coronavirus, the final severing of the UK from the EU, the end of Trump and the beginning of Biden – and it made me think of a book that I inherited from my mother. The book itself is tiny, filled with the most remarkable illustrations, and the name aroused my curiosity in the early 80s, shortly after I learned to read. The title of the book was Desiderata, the author Max Ehrmann, and the contents unforgettable. I’ve read the words a thousand times and a thousand times, the poem, for that is what it is, has given me hope, and today I’d love to pay it forward and share that with you.
Roger Keyes kindly gave me permission to record and share he wonderful poem, “Hokusai Says”, and I am grateful, so it’s a great fit for Random Acts of Suzanne!
After much deliberation I’ve started a personal podcast that I am calling “Random Acts of Suzanne” in which I plan to chat about “Random Acts of Kindness”. This is the first episode and it features a short story about a chap I met in New Orleans in 2001.
