A Little Perspective

Whenever I get sucked into the maelstrom that is "the current hot topic" on the blogosphere, I generally take a larger perspective in order to re-center myself. This video worked the trick.

We're human, remember? And the universalities of being human that connect us are far more powerful than the things that separate us.

LOVE THAT FILM

Grandma Blush lived to be 103 and other than the last 4 months was with it her entire life.

One time when she was 100 she looked at me as we were having a conversation and she kind of lost her train of thought and said to me "Steven sometimes I don't remember things to well"

And I looked at her and said "Grandma I'm 43 and a lot of times I don't remember things to well either"

And then we smiled at each other.

One of the best moments of my life.

As Melissa might say, "That made me blub."

As I watched all those beautiful people with the drum, it did, indeed remind me of our shared peoplehood.

It also made me wonder how the filmmaker came up with the idea. Hmmm, let's travel through England with a drum and find one person from 1 to 100 years old to bang on it. Such brilliance.

I know! Both of you -- isn't that film a gas?

I'm just astounded by the power of creativity sometimes -- especially when coupled with the amazing energy of human existence/universality.
