Random acts of kindness
By Robin DearingIn addition to working full-time and being a full-time mom, I teach a night class at Mesa State College. I've been teaching this class for 5 years now and I really enjoy it. But sometimes, it just seems like one more thing on my plate. Last night I dragged my sick and tired self up to the school, glad that I was giving an exam and only had to lecture for a short time. As I was preparing to give the test, I noticed something out of place on top of the projector that sits next to the computer at the front of the class room. There on top of the projector sat two tiny origami birds. These little birds might be something that you would expect to find on someone's desk or on a shelf at home, but not perched on top of a projector in a class room. It's possible that they were simply left behind from another lecture on art, but I'd like to think that whomever put them there did so just as a random act of kindness.
