Blooming Good

“Blooming Good,”  celebrates how we all can seed and spread kindness in surprising, simple, and sometimes unexpected ways.

Each month, I write a short fiction story that captures goodness inspired by positive deeds in my life and ones that subscribers share.

Thanks to Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School (LREI) in New York City for inspiring this month’s Blooming Good flash fiction story titled W.O.K.E. High School Rules. I started kindergarten in 1960 and graduated in 1973 and still embrace LREI’s mission.

A leader in progressive education since 1921, LREI teaches children to be independent thinkers who work together to solve complex problems. Students graduate from our diverse community as active participants in our democratic society, with the creativity, integrity, and courage to bring meaningful change to the world.
