Joy. It connects us all.

I did this post a while back.  

When I thought about what I wanted to post in regards to Optimism, this was it.

Seriosuly watch it. It makes you feel so happy and joyful... thrilled to be living and looking towards a fabulous future.

Makes the world feel a bit smaller.

I actually got quite choked up.

It's worth it.  Hit play.  NOW.

Even if you've already seen it.

Okay, I am sitting here with goosebumps down my arms and a big stupid grin on my face.

I have never even heard of this guy. That is so freakin' awesome! And exactly what I needed at the end of this crappy day.

I love Lula. I love Heather. I love Tiffany. Watch out, "Big Love", here we come!

Mrs. de Miranda told me I had to watch this.

At 1st I sat here waiting for something else to happen. What's it leading up to? What's the message?

And they just kept dancing. Everywhere. They were just being silly and dancing. That's it.

THAT'S IT.

Makes sense to me. It's what my kids do. Kids are smart.

And now I will go to bed smiling...seriously. Thanks, Girl.

It is hard to believe he is kinda of a Bum now. A techno nerd turned dancing geek. Makes ya smile.

I loved this video the first time I saw it. And the cool thing is he has continued his journey and his dance all over the world. It is amazing how something so simple can link so many. Thanks for reminding us!
KatBouska said…
Awesome. I love this! I would totally post it, but everyone who would watch it on my blog just commented. :)
Ash said…
What a great demonstration of how we're all just human beings who just want to be.

Except for that guy in the Demilitarized zone - I think he's dead inside.

Thanks!!

Donnetta said…
I don't know that my words can express how this touched me. Our eldest chicklet is 16. I want to tell her to finish high school, go to college and then just travel and DANCE. Have fun. Listen to your heart. Listen to the hearts of others. Be young with no worries. Smile. Spread joy. Be an inspiration. Light a fire. Make an impact. Dance.

Okay I'm not sure why but that made me cry........and laugh......
And just as I had composed myself, and settled in to type in my comment, I read Donnetta's reply to it and I cry again.
Wonderful video....
Hope everyone has a beautiful day....

"On July 22, 2008 NASA featured Harding's 3rd video on their APOD (Astronomy Picture of the Day) website, titled "Happy People Dancing on Planet Earth", making claim of humans worldwide sharing a common love of dance. The website states that "few people are able to watch the above video without smiling"

I had to google it and see why he made the video, but that isn't really important, is it? But the claim that humans worldwide share a common love of dance...couldn't be more true, huh?
