Often Active Rain challenges me in the monthly competitions. Actually I often think about these things beyond the realm of the challenges. This month there are a couple of contests I participated in. One has to do with giving back in a new way. I really like this idea and have been thinking about it a lot. I do any number of things that I believe make a difference and I am enriched by these things. Why do I do these things.....? I do them because I can.
