no doubt it's unfolding as it should

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world...
...Strive to be happy.

As an antidote to some of the horrible stories we see every day in the news, for the songs today, I wanted to share with you two videos that I recently found on the internet that cheered me greatly, and reminded me that both our planet and its people are capable of great beauty.

 

The first was originally shared by my friend Heather Armstrong, featuring dancer Li'l Buck, moving to the music of famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma.  The result is mesmerizing:

 

And secondly, found via awesome travel blogger Andrew Hyde, the stunning photography of Terje Sorgjerd, of the night sky.

Enjoy, friends.  And happy Love Thursday.
