WWII veteran refuses to close the book on his life



What a lesson! When I think how we so quickly give up our dreams and how we take for granted what appears to be so small to our eyes as reading…

This video sums up my son’s first year. He was born way too early, and the obstacles he had to overcome were really big, but not bigger than our God.
This is a story of a mother’s love for her baby.
A year ago from this Halloween he came home. I made this video to commemorate his first year and how far he has come. Today happens to be his mother’s birthday… so I made this as a gift to her.
I want to thank all the doctors, nurses, and staff all over the world that make it their life’s mission to help babies get better! It’s because of you that my son ever stood a chance to make it home!

Yasuni – Invest on the Planet


Playamart-zeebra designs reblogged this and I found this video fascinating in the sense that people can make such a huge difference to the preservation of our planet.
We tend to think we are victims of a system that decides about “progress” and we have to go blindly towards a catastrophic future our kids will be having to witness, live, suffer and accommodate with…
But there’s much more to it when you look at the bigger picture. This video is a message of hope, love, strength, perseverance, belief and appreciation for the miraculous rebirth we witness of our planet as we wake up every day to it.
It’s a nice way to spend 2.34 seconds 🙂
Enjoy!

The lonesome traveler & the lizard

His companion of the moment…
©copyright2013owpp

He sat very still… as still as the lizard on its
Branch melting in the landscape, adopting the tones
Of the scorched earth surrounding him.
Lost in a desert of thoughts, his emotions adrift…
He wished he could stay in that same position forever.
Lose all notion of his past, future, live as motionless
And inert as his companion of the moment.
