My friend Suzette has a bumper sticker that says, "The world is run by those who show up". When it comes to volunteerism, that could not be more true. These DELICIOUS deviled eggs were served at this morning's annual Volunteer Brunch hosted by the Escondido Municipal Gallery. So much fun. So much good eats. So many fine people committed to the arts. They show up and they do run things. Donna started a weekly arts group get-together 3 years ago that's still going strong. Petey and Nancy can be counted on for tasks from bulk mailing to co-chairing the annual monster fundraiser. And Kurt, practically never seen without a camera, documents everything, posts it, promotes it. They and their peers make it all happen. And they don't earn a dime in cash. They just garner millions in joyful energy.
So here's my pitch: Give a little time. Volunteer a bit. Just even show up. You too will run the world. And what you receive in return will be priceless.
And you might get deviled eggs. Yum!Renee
