SOME PEOPLE COME INTO
OUR LIVES AND QUICKLY GO.
SOME STAY FOR A WHILE
AND LEAVE FOOT PRINTS IN
OUR HEARTS AND WE ARE
NEVER, EVER THE SAME.
Of Note: Imagine that we had innumerable lives, let's say 1,000 just for fun. Now let's think of those 1,000 and all the people who would have touched us. The result is mind boggling. For me there might have been 761 spouses, 3,426 children, 2,000 parents and thousands of grandparents, friends, and co-workers. I could have lived in every country that existed at least once and could have been every race, nationality and ethnicity. Just for fun let's say that many of these contacts were in a group, and we cycled through lives just changing places. So for example, in one life I was a child of a group member, but next time around I was her co-worker. On and on the groupings could go until all the conceivable lessons were learned. Seems to me this would be a pretty efficient system to amass the most experiences, knowledge, love and wisdom possible. Maybe I should recommend it to someone. It would make one hell of a reality show.
Today's Weather Report: Easter yesterday was gorgeous and warm. I traversed the garden from top to bottom and pulled a few weeds here and there. Everything was in order and ready to pop. Today cloud cover obscures the sun but I picture it shining above the clouds and smile.
Watch For Change Snippet: By now, most have heard about the YouTube Symphony Orchestra. Recently, aspiring musicians from all over the globe from ages 15 on up auditioned for a seat on the orchestra by posting a video clip on YouTube. Thousands of entries were submitted and then members of the London Symphony and others culled the number to 200 aspirants, who were then put to an American Idol-type vote by YouTube viewers. 14 million people voted! This is no virtual ensemble. Google is flying the group who hale from 30 different countries to Carnegie Hall to perform with a top conductor. In between, the musicians have been getting lessons in technique via computer from some of the top talent in the world. Google created this promotion to tout their site and also raise awareness as to how YouTube is changing the world. Their innovative idea has certainly taken connectivity to new heights.
