Happy Sunday!

I love flash mob videos. Although this one, a 350-person dance staged at the Liverpool Street Station in 2009, is actually an ad for T-Mobile, I find it creative and fun and very inspirational. Hope you enjoy it as well.

Have a great day!

Happy Sunday!

I've always been a big fan of Johnny Cash. My parents used to listen to his music a lot when I was young, and I grew to love his distinctive voice. As I got older, I admired him even more for his strong faith in God.

About a year ago, I learned about The Johnny Cash Project, a collaborative effort to create "a living portrait of the Man In Black." Anyone who wishes to can go to the project's Web site ( and create a portrait of Johnny, and then those portraits are integrated into a video for Cash's "Aint' No Grave." The video changes as more and more people contribute their artwork; the one I've posted here is just one version. If you'd like to see the most recent version and/or contribute your own portrait, visit The Johnny Cash Project.

I hope today is a great start to your week!

I'm fascinated by stop-motion videos. I posted one of my favorites about a month ago, and I wanted to share this one today. It features Oren Lavie's beautiful "Her Morning Elegance" and is comprised of 2,096 still frames. Amazing!

You can learn more about the video here.

Have an inspirational day!

Things that make me happy

The skies have been a little gray lately in my corner of the world—literally and metaphorically—so I thought that today I'd focus on the things that make me happy, like...
