Hello sweet Planetarians, all 404 of you (and a huge hello to the newbies - passing the 400 followers mark slipped under my radar!). Thanks so much for your gorgeous responses to my last post - I'm still absorbing them. Just a quickie I'd like to share today which I spotted over at my clever friend Kirsty's blog.
I don't have a specific point to make, unlike Kirsty. This little video just resonates with me on so many levels and brought me to tears. The most obvious is my Dad's recent death, as you know. But there's so much more to it - the silly and petty comparisons with each other we can get lulled into making, the insensitive comments we might occasionally make and the judgements we can pass on others without knowing their stories.
I guess I've just feeling fragile now and this video reminds me how valuable and heart-moving compassion and kindness are to us all.
So, sit back and let your mind wander. Drink in the beauty of Kelly's message.
It's powerful, isn't it? Something to bear in mind, I think. How does it make you feel? Do jump in and share - I'd love to hear your thoughts.
