The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one Oct 5-7, 2012. Have some good news this week? Put it in the Brag Basket.

Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” When you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others. Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing.
What can you do in the Brag Basket?
- introduce yourself
- share some great news from this week
- congratulate a friend
- laugh about something wonderful that you tried that failed
- applaud for each other
Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. It lets you meet each other a bit. Reading each others’ stories brings us a bit closer to being a community.
How does it work? You write a comment on this post. We all cheer, and everyone feels great.
This is not an ad. (I delete the ads.) It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.

Congratulations! I remember you hit 100 when we were writing Small Town Rules! I’m proud you’ve stuck with it. Here’s the address, for those who haven’t listened yet:

Becky and y’all –
celebrating my 75th birthday a few months back at an Italian restaurant in Philadelphia with my sister and her two grandchildren to whom she is now mother – such an inspiration to me, my young (LOL 66 year old) sister a single mom to two rambunctious-to say the least-kids ages 7 and 9 – I am so proud of her, she is so an exemplary mom – here is a quote from her: “Every life is a sacred story.” so I am here to brag on her – there’s so much more to tell of her – back to the birthday party – entering my 76th year with the sure knowledge of these things: “so much to look forward to – so much to learn – so much to enjoy – so much to share – so much to anticipate – life is good – a divine gift with each breath” – ) well now I have decided to do away with a lot of rules that have been self-imposed it seems almost to hold me back –
A strolling accordian playing singer (hello! it WAS an Italian restaurant!) sang “Happy Birthday” to several tables – the party next to us had a 4 year old boy birthday – then our table, then the child insisted to his mom he wanted to meet me – not much verbal communication, but his enthusiasm which shone through his eyes, and i felt i caught a great surge of energy from the universe that it was so important to him that we connect – i’d say a pragmatic mystical extended moment – i spoke to his mom and everyone went back to the pasta – well now, to be even more verbose, since then i’ve done several firsts – played Mozart at the great State Fair of Oklahoma! my first State Fair gig ever! between the piglet pens and the pork shop – it was great being there!!!! – coming up my first ever concert for National Public Radio in Fort Wayne – been in OKC for 8 years and played my first Arts Festival event in the Myriad Gardens – looking forward to many many firsts in the next quarter century – that is all –
Yo! Becky! Thank you for making this special corner of the universe available – there’s no other corner I know like it.

Wayne, you and your energy could wear me out! Love all that you share, and hope you’ll keep at it for decades to come!
