It’s easy to do nothing…….
It’s Christmas it’s that time of the year when everyone is in good spirit (literally)! My other hat I wear (toiling, work) is that I drive for that very well known cab company in London called AddLee ( the best) to fund and give me time to persue my other interests (my art is just one of them).
About four years ago I decided to work on Christmas day for no other reason (as there was no public transport) it was an oppertunity to earn some good money! (little did I know that it actually, cost me money)? After various pick ups ferrying in key workers such as nurses working at Great Ormond Street Hospital, porters and maintenance staff, I received a job for pick in Cable Street, E1 for four people going to Holborn, as I turned the corner I was confronted with a “bat man” and “robin” and two ” juglers”! these people were off to give of their free time to entertain underprivileged kids. How great is that! when I asked one of the guys why he was doing it he replied “It’s easy to do nothing, but doing nothing is not an option, so do something, doesn’t have to be money just give of your time? that’s why I do it”……
So that’s when I decided to give. I work on Christmas day with an early morning start 6am, I break for lunch to visit my daughter and son inlaw see my grandaughter then back out in the evening and I give a preportion of my earnings to Great Ormond Street.
So think of me Christmas day when you are doing nothing, sitting in front of the tv, having eaten to much, drunk to much, and most probably spending it with people you don’t like to much! Start doing something…..
