This will probably be my last post on this blog for quite awhile, because I’ve been filled with the type of gratitude described in the following TEDx talk by Louie Schwartzberg:
Folks, in a country (the U.S. specifically) where we are more worried about 24 hour shipping than we are the natural wonders around us… where our privacy can be invaded so deeply, yet we stand idly by, hoping it will work itself out…
… in a world with so many possibilities, clouded by those few people whose greed and seeming lack of consciousness…
… we have gratitude.
If you’ve watched the 10 minute video above, and aren’t moved to explore more, wonder more, and worry less… there is nothing my blog can help you with. I respect and appreciate the fact you have taken time out of your day to come and read my blog.
But there are much bigger “rocks” than 24 hour shipping or the latest i-Whatever, and we sorely need to put them in all of our jars. I urge you to figure out what those “rocks” are, and what they mean to you, then act on them (see the post I’ve shared here http://josephratliff.com/writing/the-jar/ if you don’t know what I mean). I am.
Have a safe and prosperous Holiday season everyone.
