tulips3rd Friday –  a variety of things to watch and listen to.

These all look better when you make them full screen. When you click on the link, you can see the full screen symbol in the bottom right hand corner of the video player. Enjoy.

I so enjoy this demo, each time I watch it. It makes me laugh and smile with delight. There is an interesting bio of McFerrin underneath the video.

Bobby McFerrin – guest at the World Science Festival


I love this! I have watched it a dozen times at least and it makes my day better.

A Flash Mob on the Copenhagen Subway during rush hour. 


One more. This is a fun Japanese ad for a wooden cell phone, with no words. I always marvel at the feat to put this together.

I hope you enjoy your weekend and here are a couple of thoughts.

“Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious mistakes, and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here.” Neil Gaiman

“There is no innovation and creativity without failure. Period.” Brene Brown

“When I say artist I mean the one who is building things. Some with a brush. Some with a shovel. Some choose a pen.” Jackson Pollock. (we can add our own examples: in the garden, the kitchen, and a thousand different ways to be creative. Living fully with a serious illness is an art, don’t you think?)
