Color.  Gorgeous vibrant messy color.

Google’s “define color”: the property possessed by an object of producing different sensations on the eye as a result of the way the object reflects or emits light

Love this! “different sensations . . .” [Yes!]  “. . . as a result of the way the object reflects or emits light”

Isn’t this just the best definition of life?  We experience different sensations as a result of the way we reflect or emit light and darkness; happiness and sadness; laughter and anger; love and fear.  So much of life is defined by how we reflect or emit our essence.

Love is the ultimate reflection.  It is eternal.  It never wanes.  It grows before our very soul’s eyes.  We are so richly blessed to be able to reflect and emit love. toaster oven Wow is the ultimate understatement.  Love — like a Jackson Pollock painting — has the power to not only Wow! and to draw you into the details of texture and color, but it also holds the magic to reflect the most intricate designs of light and contrast.

I love color.  Who doesn’t?  Although my closet is full of black, gray, and black-and-white-polka-dot dresses, I do love color.

My favorite color?  If I were to describe the color of love, I would say Sky Blue Pink.  What color would you say describes the color of love?

This video by OK Go is a celebration of fantastical color.  So fanciful and creative and beautiful and just plain fun.  It is my wish that your day today be replete to the brim with TechniLove.

. . . and for those of you who like to understand the technology and background behind fantastical magic:

 

 

Last Leaf

This is such an awesome music video.  Fanciful, creative, beautiful, imaginative.  So innovative.  Wow!

“If you should be . . . forever it’ll be.” Forever. toaster oven 3

“Last Leaf”

If you should be the last autumn leaf hanging from the tree
I’ll still be here waiting on the breeze to bring you down to me
And if it takes forever, forever it’ll be
And if it takes forever, forever it’ll be 

And if you should be the last seed in spring to venture forth a leaf
I’ll still be here waiting on the rain to warm your heart for me
And if it takes forever, forever it’ll be
And if it takes forever, forever it’ll be

Collaboration. It’s the Everything that creates Something.

Helen Keller wrote these beautiful words: “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” 

Here is Google’s “define: collaboration“: the action of working with someone to produce or create something

I like the openness of this definition.  I like the creativity for which the word something allows.  It provides Choice.  The something can be good or bad.  Mindful or careless.  Happy or tragic.  Loving or selfish.  Beautiful or stunted.

Life, at times unfortunately, allows for both.  But this duality gives us Choice.  To dream.  To build.  To create.  To collaborate.  To experience.  In my ideal world, I am opting for good, mindful, happy, loving, beautiful.  And then some.  Having this Choice leads me to consciously and unconsciously create and allow ways for these intentions to collaborate and build something that is bigger than the human spirit.  Bigger than what I could ever do on my own.  I want Positive.  This is the direction in which I want my life to travel.  And I want to travel with those who believe this same thing.  It makes life such a fun adventure.toaster oven

This OK Go video is awesome.  It is a creative masterpiece of collaboration.  I hope that you have fun watching this!

And here is a link to an article that describes the video’s selfless and fantastic motivation of helping needy animals:

There are many behind-the-scenes videos and outtakes as well.  It is all just so fanciful.  I hope you enjoy this creativity!  I always feel so good after I watch this testimony to collaboration.  🙂

Feel Better Now . . . Someone Cares

030I was talking with a friend a few days ago who was processing what felt to be a major setback.  It was one of those life surprises that was translating as problematic rather than delightful.  She said that she was just feeling so alone in the midst of the changes.  We shared some old stories and irreverent humor and we parted paths; she said that she knew that she was good to go in this new chapter.  Knowing that there is someone who has your back when you feel as if you have been tossed into a Rube Goldberg maze is always a good balm in times of unease.

If you are struggling today with some challenge or mystery in life, I hope that the sign in this photograph reminds you of both someone who cares and of someone you care about.

And through these words on the page — like a love letter between strangers — I am reminded that although you and I do not have a direct connection of shared past experiences, there is this present moment that connects all of us in ways that could prove to be significant.

This video by OK Go is so! awesome: This Too Shall Pass.  I hope that it helps you to feel some fancifulness and some hope in today . . . to Feel Better Now . . . to know that you are not alone.  That there is a back-up team upstairs that is helping to make the magic happen and to cheer when it does.  And when it doesn’t.  There are those days when you feel like you are in the firing squad line, and you are about to be splatted with a massive dose of paint.  But there is a support team.  We are all connected . . . there is a sense of timing and orchestration.  There is immense brilliance in the Rube Goldberg moments of our lives.  Others care.  I do.  Feel Better Now.
