A Package This Makes It Seem Like It's All Worth While

Over the years we've sent prison inmates any books they ask for. 20 years ago, we were sending out a lot of weight training books. These days, they're asking for building books.*

Yesterday this package arrived and it was a delight. The spoon is really nice. Handcrafted, not made in China.
The notes in yellow say:

"Dear Lloyd & friends,
A few years ago you folks were kind enough to send me Home Work for free when I was locked up - so, to return the kindness, here is a gift. Enjoy it! If you come across anyone else who wants one, they are on Etsy:

Best regards,
Drew"

*If you're an inmate or know any, tell them to write us for free books. -LK

Well done Drew. Good to know that your kindness was repaid, even if not requested.

Just read a post on Not Buying Anything about Radical Acceptance that brought me to tears. Now this - second time today. I agree with Tohner Jackson; you are my guru, too. I love you Lloyd. D.
