Earlier this month shoppers at the Philadelphia Macy's experienced a "Random Act of Culture". Courtesy of the Knight Foundation and organized by the Opera Company of Philadelphia over 600 singers mingled with the holiday crowd. On cue, and accompanied by the fabulous pipe organ that was installed a century ago by John Wanamaker, the huge choir offered their gift - the Hallelujah chorus from Handel's Messiah. Watch the video and smile. Better yet, offer your own gift. Not wrapped with a ribbon and bow - your gift of shared time, commitment, a listening ear. My gift today will come from my kitchen. What will yours be?
