Episode 056 : Heart Rocks w/ Tway Huyhn

Sometimes something so small can bring us a sense of comfort. Sometimes magic can be found in something unexpected. Tway Huynh felt that exact magic when she found a heart shaped rock while running on the beach. Since then, she has found one almost everyday. People send in their short stories of kindness, and for every rock she finds, she associates one of their stories. She talks with me about how she is using that rock and the hundreds she found after it, to display people's acts of kindness.
