What makes us feel alive?

I often try and think about what makes someone connect with a work of art. What is it that stops us in our tracks and makes us reconsider, even in a small way, how we see the world or feel about it? Sometimes this happens when we see a work of art, read a great story or just come across anything at all that moves us. Often it is not planned or expected. This video of two friends out on a boat ride so perfectly captures that moment. Life can be so rich, so unbelievably surprising that all one can do in the end, like these two girls, is just laugh and be thankful.

I am being amazed this morning by connections. I am now connected to your wonderful art by Brene Brown, and connected to Brene by meeting a new friend at a place I love here on Long Island Sunday - a Friary called Little Portion.....where I met a young teacher and he had posted Brene's video on vulnerability, (which I sent to my Sister this morning) and now, I am seeing that the beautiful video you posted "Murmuration" is the one Sister sent ME a while ago to cheer me. I think there is some kind of love and help radar that flies around the world like seeds and birds and flower pollen inspiring and infusing us with hope and fun.
Love your art and I feel connected to beauty from it.
Thanks for sharing.
