Scatter Seeds Of Kindness



If you have a friend worth loving
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you
Sung by any child of song
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves you
By its humble, pleading tone
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his God alone
Why should not thy brother share
The strength of ‘two or three' in prayer?

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand
Say so. Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go
Leave them. Trust the Harvest-Giver
He will make each seed to grow
So, until the happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend

Naomi Osaka serves on and off the tennis court. The tennis superstar is serving us some high-fashion realness over here. In addition to being a champion tennis player, an inspirational activist, and a part-time fashion designer, Naomi can now add Louis Vuitton’s brand ambassador to her résumé. “Aside from tennis, my most treasured passion is fashion, and there is no brand more iconic than Louis Vuitton,” Naomi said in a press release. “It is such an honor to work with Nicolas [Ghesquière] — he’s a designer I admire so much and we share a mutual love of Japanese culture and style. To become global brand ambassador is truly a dream come true for me.”

At only 23 years old, Naomi has collaborated with Japanese label Adeam at New York Fashion Week. Now, she’s the newest face of the Paris fashion house. Osaka officially makes her debut as the ambassador to the luxury fashion brand in the spring/summer 2021 fashion campaign photographed by Nicolas. “Naomi is an exceptional woman who represents her generation and is also a role model for everyone,” Nicolas said. “Her career and convictions are inspiring. I am in awe of Naomi, she stays true to herself and doesn’t compromise on her values.” We can’t wait to see what other looks Naomi serves up this spring.
