At work I have one of those calendars where you rip a day and each day holds something. Mine is a quote each day, some days are better than others. Yesterday was particularly meaningful for me.

"Never worry about the numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you." -Mother Teresa, Christian missionary

I interpreted Mother Teresa's words to fit my project. The person that finds a crane is potentially nearest to me distance wise. It may be the next person in line at the ATM, another person perusing the library, someone traveling behind me in a museum. Don't worry about the reach of the project but the depth of it. The quote has reminded me why I am doing the project: to spread peace and positivity to strangers. Sometimes it helps to be reassured by the little things.


  1. Great quote! Definitely something I need to hear right now, as well.

  2. So I found number 330... now what? :)
