Sharing is good.
In the aftermath of the 22 February, 2011 earthquake I was amazed by, appreciated and enjoyed the massive scale sharing by people on the devastated east side of the city. With no electricity, water, supermarkets, sewer, buses, jobs, etc (for at least 2 weeks) people shaken out of their routine lives had the time and inclination to share - sharing time, talk, labour, water, food, love, cups of tea. Despite the death and destruction it was a wonderful time.
